Bible studies

Gender and restoring relationships

In reading the Bible, we see that men and women are created equal. This study helps us to reflect on how men and women should relate to each other in a positive, interdependent and mutually supportive way

From: Reveal toolkit: Gender and sexual violence

Tools to reveal and address inequality between men and women, and to address gender-based violence, including sexual violence and female genital mutilation/cutting

This Bible study is based on Genesis 1:26-28.

It makes the following key points:

  • God created human beings in his own image and likeness (Genesis 1:27). Women and men are different but both are created in God’s image and are equal.
  • From Genesis 1:26-28, we can see that the power to subdue and dominate is to be used in stewarding the earth and acting with care and justice, rather than trying to control other people.
