Abstract

The Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church has tried on at least five previous occasions to resolve the issue of whether or not to ordain women ministers. Opposing sides use the same passages of Scripture, demonstrating convincingly that there are more layers to this issue than many care to admit. The chapter explores some of these layers, including historical roots for current practice, a review of the biblical practice of installing leaders, and how various models of Church determine ministry functions. Finally, an evaluation of the reasons given to prevent modern women from following in their steps.
