Judges 11-12, 1 Corinthians 11
I was initially taken aback that God would allow Jephthah’s daughter to be offered as a human sacrifice. But then a read this https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/rethinking-jephthah-foolish-vow/%3famp. Hope it helps anyone who was as confused as I was
32But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.
This chapter in 1 Corinthians is about obeying God rightly. In regard to head coverings, it is to not despise the order God has set, and to set a right example to the unbelieving world by adhering to what is culturally moral. In regard to the Lord’s supper it is to understand the sweet unity offered in breaking bread and not to dishonor it by refusing to wait for another and letting another go hungry.
I found it helpful to read 1 Corinthians 11 in The Message translation. It clarifies that men and women have different roles but neither is truly “first” before the other.
