Thirdly as an illustration of how to deal with “problem” passages.

Colin Byrnes lives in Sydney and for many years has been a member of the Christadelphian Church or ecclesia at Castle Hill.
A couple of years ago Colin published a book entitled “God Christ Man Woman”
In the introduction he writes “This is written by a Christadelphian for Christadelphians but anyone else is a welcome reader. It was born out of the evangelical feminism that began to seriously bite in various churches in the early 1980s. It was inevitable that this would soon have an impact on the Christadelphian movement. Male leadership has been the norm since the inception of the movement and continues to be so. However, a small minority of brothers and sisters in the ecclesial world has challenged male leadership.”

James Andrews lives in Coventry the United Kingdom – a city about 180 kms North West of London, near Birmingham. James is a member of the Kenilworth Christadelphian church or ecclesia, a town just outside Coventry.
James recently wrote a 3 – part article in the Christadelphian Magazine about David entitled – David a witness to the peoples. It catalogues the vast extent to which David’s life was bound up with not only his own people but by those from the neighbouring nations. The definitive reference to the “tabernacle of David” by James in Acts 15 at the Jerusalem conference suggests that this involvement with people outside of Israel is key to our understanding of Gods plan.
