Thank you for the prompt to look into the goddess themes in the OT—they are certainly important. I keep thinking Jezebel has a strangely prominent role.

I try to keep articles to “7 minutes” long, but a whole article could probably be written on females essentially characterizing early Christian mission work. I think the very misread 1–2 Timothy letters are about that.

Perhaps when men asserted dominance, “Christianity” became simply another tool of empire.
