1 Corinthians 11:3 Study Challenge

   Within the context of 1 Corinthians 11:3, we see that this entire verse is a prepositional (sequential) reference to the physical order of creation and to Christ alone as the creator of all people. It does not refer to a hierarchal chain of command between God, Christ, man, and woman. 
   The construction of the verse itself refutes a hierarchal interpretation. 
   The verse describes a circular relationship rather than linear chain of command. It does not begin with Christ and end with woman, as a linear—hierarchal—construction would dictate. But rather, it portrays a continuum, beginning with Messiah (who is God) and ending with God (who is Messiah).
