What is a Head Covering? Is it a Woman’s Long Hair or a Veil?
In 1 Corinthians 11, the Apostle Paul instructs women to cover their heads while praying or prophesying.

However, in the 20th century, a view began to gain popularity which argued that Paul wasn’t speaking about veils, but hair lengths. In this video we’ll overview this debate and provide 5 reasons for why we believe a woman is to cover her long hair with an artificial covering when praying or prophesying.
