Q. I understand that the Bride of Christ is referred to as Kings and Priests, my question is does that apply to women? It appears to me that that title would apply to men only as the Bible is gender specific. What role do you think women in the Bride of Christ will have? Will they rule also as “Kings” and “Priests?”
A. I get similar questions from men who ask how they can be the bride of Christ, because brides are normally female. In Galatians 3: 28 Paul said that God doesn’t think of Church Age believers as Jew or Gentile, slave or free, or male or female because we are all one in Christ Jesus. Therefore, whether the Church is called the bride of Christ or referred to as kings and priests, everyone is included.
No one knows the specific role of the kings and priests that make up the Church. But whatever it is, based on Galatians 3:28, both men and women will be involved.
