Abstract

The theory that Jesus founded a "discipleship of equals" that after his death assumed the shape of egalitarian structured house churches, which by the end of the first century abandoned their egalitarian ethos and organization and assimilated to the conventional patriarchal household pattern of their Greco-Roman environment, fails to stand up under close scrutiny. The theory lacks probative textual and historical support, is sociologically implausible, conceptually anachronistic, and appears ideologically driven.
