[b-greek] Re: Feminine Images of God

Date: Fri Feb 01 2002 - 02:21:15 EST

In the February 2002 issue of the Mensa Bulletin Rebecca James Hecking
says the New Testament contains several feminine images of God
including: "Mother Hen, Bakerwoman, and the woman searching for a
lost coin." Unfortunately, there are no chapter and verse citations.
Does the original Greek support the idea that these are indeed
feminine images of God? Also, the Scriptures often speak of the Holy
Spirit giving birth to Christians, a decidedly feminine view of God.
