People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 2:13


1Ti 2:13 For. Some reasons drawn from the story of man in Eden are given for these rules. It will be seen that Paul regards these events as shadowing forth spiritual lessons. Adam was first formed, then Eve. Man came in order before woman.

Discussion for 1 Timothy 2

    Mark, take a look at Romans 9. Vessels unto honor, dishonor.

    "..... women to keep silence in the church ..... " Paul's words were NOT his, but God's. Paul prayed about what He wrote and God moved on his mind. It's the same with pastors. Aquila did the 'preaching'-IF they had a church in their home Pricilla was his 'helpmeet'. Lydia let Paul, other men use her home to preach.
  • Irene123
    To Sheila, 6 21 '15 - the donkey wasn't preaching from God's Word you're fighting against God. "No one but God will close my mouth" you're tempting God, be careful Sheila - please: you are loved ................
  • Irene123
    Aquila, Pricilla They were 'teaching' one person not preaching in a church. They were 'witnessing'. Apollos NEEDED their expounding on the truth of Jesus because he was doing some harm otherwise they would have left him alone.
  • Irene123
    To be on this site where others are truly needing help - and then to say things like, "you wicked people" - is an awful thing. There are people that are in depression and despair and that does not help.

    The scripture is plain clear. Public teaching of women where men are present is what the Apostle Paul is talking about. There's lots of work for a woman in the Church. Only this one is reserved for men. Must we argue with God?
