In the third chapter, we start from from point that "God created two kinds of human beings." Why was this so - why not just one?
The roles given to men in priesthood, rulership and family order do not imply that women are of lesser worth. Rather, women are given experiences of such depth of meaning that, from another perspective, it seems that women have been unfairly favoured by God.
I compare the mutuality of the married sexual relationship with the physical structure of the Temple, as hinted at by a number of scholars.
It is a tragic mistake for society to force women and men into conformity to parity in roles that neither biology nor God's creation order supports.
Next, "Israel and The Nations", chapter 4.
