Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 2:6


2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all - Such a ransom, the word signifies, wherein a like or equal is given; as an eye for an eye, or life for life: and this ransom, from the dignity of the person redeeming, was more than equivalent to all mankind. To be testified of in due season - Literally, in his own seasons; those chosen by his own wisdom.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 2:6


1Ti 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all. Not for an elect nation, like the Jews, or for the elect individuals arbitrarily selected, but for all men. All men have been redeemed by his blood, if they will accept the ransom. To be testified in due time. The testimony, or preaching of this ransom, was to be given at due seasons.

    I am reading, listening, and observing. The women in ministry who are in authority what is your word to the public on this chapters meaning. Totally confused when in no doubt we were all given the rules to the ten commandments which tells us what not do as well as to do. Never saw that women could not be in authority to the word.

    I believe there is an order of things, not to discredit anyone, but Jesus would want each of us to be faithful and obedient to the Word of God. I believe all things are possible in God who strengthens us
  • Roddy
    98%of the time when the bible references men, it is generally understood to mean mankind. Meaning men and women. Different versions state...and give gifts to people. (instead of men) to include women. mankind. it is good to read different versions of the same scriptures for more clarity. Message should be same...words easier to understand.
