I claim Christ Jesus as my covering. I look to him as my head and my righteousness. I trust him as my only covering of salvation.
The Apostle Paul, in his first letter to the Church at Corinth, stated “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head.”
What does this mean for modern-day Christians? Are women to have their heads covered at church and for worship? Or does the doctrine of the head covering no longer apply?
In this meticulously detailed exposition, Dr. Sledd takes readers on a thorough exploration of the doctrine of the head covering by analyzing scripture, first century Corinthian pagan worship, and the original Greek language.
His research gives a clear understanding for today and teaches the importance of celebrating the distinctions between male and female, and that all Christians are covered by the true covering – the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
