Feminists behind the new bible: The old misused for sexism

On the basis of #the meto-wave has a group declared feminist theologians, who counts both catholic and protestant, now released their own copy of the bible.

The old - or the real bible if you will - is not as the starting point sexist, but misused for sexism, says the group of female theologians.

It writes a number of foreign media, among other things, the Telegraph.

Their own version of the bible with a feminist angle was released in October, and it's called 'Une bible des femmes' - the woman's bible.

Hovedkvinderne behind the book is Lauriane Savoy and Elisabeth Parmentier from the theological faculty in Geneva. In all, 18 female theologians - both catholic and protestant - party book.

- the Problem is that the Bible has been used to reinforce cultural stereotypes, while you look closely at the biblical text, they are much more varied than people think, says Elisabeth Parmentier.

- for Example, where the apostle Paul says, 'Wives, underkast you your men, but he said at the same time, 'men, love your wives'. It was revolutionary at the time. But the last part of the sentence was cut off by the church leaders, who wanted to strengthen the patriarchal vision of society, says Parmentier.

another example is Mary Magdalene, who is the female character, who, according to the feminist theologians take up the most e gospels.

She stood by Jesus when he died on the cross, and where all the male disciples were afraid. She was also the first to go to his tomb and discover his resurrection. But she is described as a slut, and even as Jesus ' lover in the recent fiction, reads it from the authors.
