Naomi’s Table is a complementarian group of women who are earnestly abiding in Jesus Christ through His Word. We believe that 1 Timothy 2:12 is clear about women not teaching or having spiritual authority over men. We also believe the Bible prohibits the office of female pastor.
Where is the Table located?
The Table exists exclusively in a private Google+ group, and not affiliated with any other ministry. This website is an archive site of our women’s Bible studies, which are the exclusive copyright and property of each individual teacher.
I came up with Naomi after studying the way this woman instructed her daughter-in-law, Ruth. The Bible says in Titus 2:3-5 that older women are to teach younger women about the beautiful truths of our faith. It’s not about age, but about experience and maturity. In the Book of Ruth, Naomi was the older “mom,” but suffered such bitter losses that she herself needed grace and nurturing from the younger Ruth. It was Ruth’s faithfulness and obedience that lead her to glean not only food for the two of them, but those precious kernels of truth that lead her to relationship with her kinsman redeemer. What an incredible testimony! It paints a beautiful picture of our Kinsman Redeemer, Jesus. That’s the idea behind Naomi’s Table. We want “seasoned women” to point those young in the faith to Christ.
What happens at the table?
We learn together at the feet of our magnificent Savior, Jesus Christ. We study His Word and learn about the often confusing roles the world tells us we need to take on, and compare those pressures with what the Bible says about Godly women and discipleship.
In this unique setting we have something incredibly precious: a real connection with each other is happening in our interactive Naomi’s Table community on Google+, a very private group that can allow us to have live events – we can even watch a video together or have some teaching time during monthly meetups.
Here we can go deeper than we can with most of our friends, and share those gleanings just like Naomi and Ruth did long ago.
Blessings in Christ alone,
