NT Pod 4: Does 1 Cor. 11.15 refer to a "testicle"?
The fourth episode of the NT Pod discusses Troy Martin's intriguing translation of 1 Corinthians 11.15 as "For her hair is given to her instead of a testicle".
It is six and a half minutes long. Feel free to leave your comments below.
The podcast provides a summary of a talk I recently gave in Rome, at the SBL International Meeting, for which I provided a hand-out (PDF), which may be useful to some -- it summarizes the argument and gives the background texts.
