"Scandals from the New Testament"

By David Instone -Brewer (a series of articles in Christianity, 2009)

The morals of a society is marked at the place where they perceive a scandal has occurred. By studying scandals in the NT and the NT world, we get a very clear picture of NT morals.

How many sandals have survived from the first century anyway?

So far I've written on the NT Scandal of...
.. Jesus' Parentage - everyone knew he was conceived outside of marriage
.. Jesus' Singleness - all Jews were commanded to marry
.. Provocative Fashions - women's head-dress was a matter of morality
.. Rebellious Teenagers - fathers were legally responsible for punishing
.. Educated Women - only high-class prostitutes had a good education
.. Gender Equality - men were oikedespotes outside the house, and women inside
