CFW Podcast: An Egalitarian Perspective on Mary & Joseph
We are back with Christian Feminism Weekly with Ashley and Charlie!
To get in the Christmas spirit, Charlie and I share perspectives on Jesus' earthly parents, Mary and Joseph. As it turns out they had quite an anti-patriarchal, egalitarian marriage… before it was cool.
We also chat about key quotes from the Book Maelstrom:
"Now, not only is [Joseph] refusing to defend his honor, he is joining [Mary] in her shame... He shuts down his carpenter shop, get behind Mary's calling, adapts himself to his wife and God's calling on her life. His whole life will be committed to making sure she succeeds in carrying out the mission God has entrusted to her. Even according to today's egalitarian standards, this is radical." -Carolyn Custis James, Malestrom
