In all the cases I’ve seen of complementarians arguing ESS, it’s generally been on the basis of marital submission.) For starters, I am a woman over the age of 40 and have never been married.
For now, here are links to the Mc Knight posts (on his “Jesus Creed” blog): Complementarianism’s Trinity: The Story Now Told – Aug 14 The Rise of the Complementarian Hypothesis of the Trinity – Aug 15 Civil War Among The Complementarians – Aug 16 Why Did It Take So Long? (Eternal Subordination of the Son) to ground the subordination of wives to husbands in their very being (they use ESS as an ontological device).
In the discussions I’ve seen of this issue, complementarians leave the Holy Spirit out of the loop: they argue that the Son is in submission to the Father, the Father is “in charge over” the Son, but I’ve not seen them comment about the Holy Spirit.
Complementarians like to compare the Trinity (or shall we say the Divine Duo of Father and Son – they drop the Holy Spirit) to human marriages, where they proclaim that the Father is analogous to a human husband, and the Son is analogous to a human wife.
