Puritan Board Freshman
In what way has the position of women changed in the transition from the Old Testament to the New Testament? For example, women are baptised in the NT but obviously could not be circumcised in the OT. Is there any spiritual advance for women to which this is pointing? Herod's Temple had "the Court of the Women" which seems to have been as far as the women were allowed to go. I am not clear that this was a biblical arrangement but if it was, it would seem that the NT marks an immense change in the position of women. I am interested in general light on this topic on which I feel very ignorant.
