Manfred T. Brauch on Kaphale (head)

Manfred T. Brauch’s Abusing Scripture: The Consequences of Misreading the Bible has one of the best discussions of the case for reading kaphale (head) as meaning “source” or “origin” over and against “authority.”

This much neglected book deserves a wider reading, not just for its interpretations of gender texts, but for its common sense in reading the Bible as a whole.

  1. Thanks for this link to Brauch’s book. This has been very useful as I am currently writing about the meaning of kephale in Paul’s letters.
