For the session to be discussed on October 4, 2015
What is this passage really about? Divorce? marriage? power? The team discusses the kinds of abuses that could occur in the culture of the 1st Century, where women and children had very little ability to make choices for themselves. We also discuss ways the modern church has, and does respond to divorce, and look at ideas for better responses.
