A study designed to help students understand the biblical view of God s design for men and women. Through nine sessions students will examine gender through the lens of Scripture.
For the vast majority of human history, there have been two culturally and socially recognized genders: women and men. Today, many leading social institutions recognize well over fifty variations of gender. There are now biological women who identify as men and biological men who identify as women. There are people who refuse to conform to any one gender and people who are currently one gender but transitioning to another. There was a time when the concept of what made someone a man or a woman was quite simple. In less than a century, culturally speaking, that has completely changed.
If there was ever a time when Christians needed to think carefully and biblically about the question of gender, that time is now.
Despite our culture s many faceted ideas and designs about gender, there is only one design that truly matters and takes precedent, God s. At the heart of the Christian faith is the belief that God created all things and that He is good. This tell us that God has a design for us, including our gender. In this study, we will seek to uncover and submit to, in Scripture, God s design for men andwomen."
