Virtual Roundtable: Putting Clobber Passages in their Place
By Alexis James Waggoner | 9.9.19
Join Westar biblical scholars Perry Kea and Marti Steussy for a discussion on the so-called "clobber passages."
Often used as a way to deny LGBTQIA+-identifying folks full inclusion in the life of faith, these few verses have taken on an oppressive life of their own. Perry and Marti will look at these verses from the perspective of biblical interpretation and historical criticism while also pointing out examples of radical biblical inclusion.
