“When you read Revelation, you should read it like a political cartoon.” “The harlot rides the Beast … the Bride of Christ does not.” If either phrase intrigues you, then you are in for a beast of a good time with us!

Nick and Allison and Nugs are back! Join us for a verse-by-verse walk through of Colossians 3:1-17. Usually 3:18-19 is the focus in the evangelical gender debate, but we felt like vv.1-17 had a lot more to offer contextually and spiritually. So, join us for the first part of a two-parter as we prepare the way for an egalitarian reading of Colossian…
 
Hi everyone! In this episode we talk with Pastora Ines Velásquez-McBryde and Pastor Bobby Harrison, co-pastors of The Church We Hope For about co-pastoring, egalitarianism, and ministry during COVID. You can follow both Ines and Bobby on twitter!By Nick and Allison Quient

Allison and Nick are overjoyed to have on Kristen Padilla. Kristen is a graduate of Beeson Divinity School and and is a mother, wife, and minister of the Gospel and we talk about a lot of really interesting this! More specifically, we talk about her book Now that I am Called: A Guide for Women Discerning a Call to Ministry, which is an excellent bo…
 
In this episode, Nick and Allison answer a few more listener questions. Specifically, we talk about Junia in Romans 16:7, our hopes and dreams about raising our son in an egalitarian household and church, and how egalitarianism is winning the day in seminaries. We also spend some time addressing a listener’s question about 1 Timothy 2:12. You also …
 
Hi everyone! We answer four specific questions in this episode and also talk about the birth of our newborn baby boy, Nolan!

Dr. Ron Pierce (Ph.D, Fuller Theological Seminary) is Professor of Old Testament at Biola University and has written and edited numerous books and articles on the topic of women in ministry and the evangelical gender debate. Ron is also a personal friend of ours and we are just over the moon that we could have him on our podcast! In addition to bei…
 
Yes. You read that correctly. N.T. Wright stopped by for a few minutes to talk about his new mammoth masterpiece (co-written with Mike Bird) The New Testament in its World: An Introduction to the History, Literature, and Theology of the First Christians. It is a wonderful work that both Allison and I will be using in our future (hopeful) teaching c…

In this mega super yuge episode totally nearly 2 hours (!), Nick and Allison explore the complexities of bible translations, and how modern English translations impact gender. We look especially at the ESV and give a brief response to Mike Winger, a Christian apologist who did an entire video on bible translations that is both helpful and somewhat …
 
Hi everyone! We made it around the Texas triangle (Houston - San Antonio - Austin - Waco - DFW - Houston) and during this trip we talked about our time at the Christians for Biblical Equality conference in Houston and answered listener questions. Questions about 1 Tim 2:12, ‘authority,’ abuse, staying in church, and many others! Support us on patre…
 
In this episode Nick and Allison talk about the Prophetess Huldah and about basic hermeneutics as they relate to the evangelical gender debate. Much could be said but we limited ourselves to the discussion simply to make things a bit breezy. They also include a discount code at the end of the episode for the Christians for Biblical Equality Confere…
 
This week we talk with Dr. Michael F. Bird, who is Academic Dean and Lecturer in Theology at Ridley College in Australia about Jesus and his view of gender. Mike is a former complementarian who has recently changed his mind on the bible's view of women and we talk about many things in this episode: Jesus and divorce, coffee, Mike's poor taste in dr…
 
So, it has been an odd journey since last we spoke! Nick and Allison have both had a few major life changes (you'll have to listen to the episode to find out what exactly all that is!), but today our topic concerns different so-called "gender myths" in relation to friendship and the church. We tackle three so-called "gender myths" in this episode. …
 
Welp, this is our second recording of this difficult portion of Scripture! Allison took the lead on this one, walking us through multiple exegetical and theological issues within Romans 5, especially as it relates to gender. Does Romans 5 say anything about gender? The answer may surprise you. Or it won't. For Allison's paper on Romans 5:12-21 and …
 
Boom! In this episode, we tackle a highly debated text - although we do so with a different edge. While we affirm a fairly traditional reading of Romans 1, we come to some interesting conclusions that affect the evangelical gender debate - in a good way! Nick also eats some gross jelly beans, and Allison sips some fireball whiskey. Nick will someda…
 
This is a recording of Allison's presentation she gave at Duke Divinity School in mid-August and at the Interdisciplinary Theology Conference in October. Since many of you have inquired about it, we decided to make it a podcast episode for all to enjoy. Most importantly: will Nick get a good jelly bean or a bad one? You'll have to listen and find o…
 
Well, this one was interesting to say the least! We drove out to Flagstaff, AZ to hang out with one of our best friends (hi Kyle), and then we drove another 7 hours to south Denver, CO for a wedding (hi David and Rebecca and KJ and CJ). That explains the odd audio quality and the different songs. In this episode we talk about: Christian perfection.…
 
Welcome back! It has been a while, hasn't it? In this episode, Nick and Allison discuss the wide-ranging topic of women in Luke/Acts, touching on various elements of the doctrine of God, the Holy Spirit and Pentecost, how we should read narrative, and commenting on the evangelical tendency to downplay narrative in the quest for 'propositional' trut…
 
Since this episode won't air on Sunday, Happy Mother's Day! In this episode, we had some fun! We went through a lot of Galatians 1-3 for context, and then worked through the parallel passages of Galatians 3:28, as well as the theology within this verse. We also spent a great deal of time answering some listener questions. If you ever have any quest…
 
Allison and I originally planned on working through Galatians 3:26-29 (and more specifically through the entire epistle) in this episode, but some interesting events have occurred in the blogosphere that demanded our response. On April 19th, John Piper released a short 10 minute video where he responded to a questioner from the United Kingdom. The …
 
Well hello, welcome to our podcast! And blog! In this episode, we talk about the finer points of textual criticism, church fathers, and the various interpretive issues surrounding 1 Corinthians 14:34-35. We argue that the context and textual problems strongly suggest that these two verses are an interpolation. Also, because Nick *makes* Allison dri…
 
This episode is a bit different. We get a bit personal. Well, we also tell jokes and enjoy our time together as always! This time, Allison and Nick tell us about their egalitarian wedding, including some interesting details that often get left aside. Nick gives us a glimpse into the theology of John Wesley and Allison talks about Paul and Adam for …
 
Well, this is the first episode of the New Year. Not much else to say about that, especially given what has happened in the news. Downer. Oh well. Anyway. In this episode, we tackle Paul's most difficult passage, a passage that has kept a lot of Pauline exegetes scratching their heads. Allison coerced Nick into trying a jelly bean or three, and it …
 
Well Happy New Year! In this episode, Nick and Allison discuss Paul's most neglected treatise on marriage. We discuss sexual ethics, divorce, authority in marriage, and Allison tries a beer. Spoiler: she does not like it. At all. Don't worry, Nick will finally find a beer for her! [No he won't] Recommended resources include Ronald W. Pierce's artic…
 
This one was fun! Allison and I talked about Ephesians 5:18-33 and how we interpret this passage! Rather than enforcing a hierarchy within marriage, we conclude that marriage is not about men or women having final authority in the relationship, but rather that Paul believed in mutual submission. Allison walks us through vv.18-24 and the grammar and…
 
Well, here it is! I must say Allison and I are getting pretty good at this! In this episode, we tackle 1 Tim. 3:1-13 and show that it cannot be used in isolation, nor can it be used to exclude women from the office of 'elder' and 'deacon/minister.' We also respond to two main comments by Pastor John MacArthur, and refute his arguments for a male le…
 
Well, this is the big one. In most debates in evangelicalism, this is the proof text where most of the fighting begins. For further evidence in support of Nick's argument about the conjunction οὐδέ, see Philip B. Payne's article or just buy his book where he spends over 100 pages on 1 Timothy 2. It is worth your time. For a review, see J.W. Wartick…
 
Well, here we are. In our inaugural episode, we talk about some of our journey into becoming egalitarians, as well as introducing "book corner" and Allison's research interest: theological interpretation of scripture! So we talk about hermeneutics, Paul and the Gift by John Barclay, our individual stories, and how some assumptions may play into one…
