About Veilless in Corinth: An Interpretative Read of 1 Corinthians 11.2-16
In the traditional reading of 1 Corinthians 11.2-16, Paul is seen as interacting with a problem within the worship service in the Corinthian church, should women wear or not wear veils when they pray or prophesy. Most commentaries follow this reading working with the text as it stands within the customs of the day. Most readers seems to come away from the traditional reading thinking that Paul is a woman-hater because this text presents his prejudice on the subject. If this is true of Paul, then he has varied from the story that underlies his telling in his writings. Remember, that Paul’s assumption may be that when the church gathers fro worship, creation is being restored or at a minimum that in gathered worship, we are anticipating creation’s eventual restoration. What you will discover in this alternative reading of this passage is a different way to see what Paul is saying, which keep in line with the overall storyline he proposes.
