Part two of a conversation with Dr. Gene Green, professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, regarding the word hupotassō, often translated “submit” in 1 Peter and other NT books. He asks the question where and when should we “change the orders” rather than just to submit to them. Jonathan Blanchard, one of the founders of Wheaton College, was a respected abolitionist who looked at the “order” of society, challenged it, and ultimately helped to abolish slavery. Are there other orders in society that we should challenge and not just accept?
