Lecture 5, Wives, Part 1:
We come to Ephesians 5:22, a controversial text that tells wives to submit to their husbands. Dr. Sproul calls this verse “the great evangelical ‘yes but’ passage.” The “yes” that wants to observe the mandate in the text faces the resistance of the “but” protesting against such submission. Yet, the text remains simple and clear and there should be no “buts” for the Christian. This lesson, then, explains how wives are to submit to their husbands in connection with the qualifications related to this verse.
