1. I heard this reading on Sunday and was fascinated…I had to look up some good analysis. I really enjoyed your smybolic connections, though my hermeneutic of this passage is a bit different. I’m developing my research proposal for my Master’s thesis on the development of women’s ordination in the Church of Ireland. In particular the phrase “the Lord…strengthened the mother’s judgment over her sons” and the balance of honoring both parents posits women’s leadership in the temporal sphere on par with men’s, as God wills. Would love to get connected and see more of your work.
