what did that do for him spiritually?
JTB was the greatest prophet ever born to woman (the soul) but even the least in the Kingdom is greater than he:
JTB knew he had to decrease in order for CHRIST IN HIM to increase and when CHRIST INCREASES in someone, he must become the HEAD of the woman (the soul)
Eve was taken out of Adam, hence she is his soul,not his rib:
the word rib means side as in the left side, the helpmeet of the two sides: THE RIGHT SIDE is suppoed to be GODS SPIRIT ruling the hand of power which is supposed to CLEAVE TO THE SOUL or helpmeet of the SPIRIT and the souls DESIRE (which is what the soul is) should be to her husband, her head:
the word head in Judaism 'rosh' means this
it obviously has nothing to do with just the physical head which is a bunch of "matter" that returns to dust upon death:
while the soul is saved so does the soul need a head?
or is the soul saved headless because the soul has no physical head after the body dies?
From an unused root apparently meaning to shake

this shows that head is not just the physical head, but like the 'head of a corporation or household', there are more meanings for head than just the physical meat around the skull:
if man is the head of the household, is he just a head?
does he also have a body?
why doesn't it say, the head and body of the household is the man??
why does it say the man is the head of the woman if it is literal??
I mean, are the people who take this literally really the head of their wives?
what did they do with their wives heads?
