Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 2:14


2:14 And Adam was not deceived - The serpent deceived Eve: Eve did not deceive Adam, but persuaded him. Thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, #Gen 3:17|. The preceding verse showed why a woman should not usurp authority over the man. this shows why she ought not to teach. She is more easily deceived, and more easily deceives. The woman being deceived transgressed - The serpent deceived her, #Gen 3:13|, and she transgressed.

Discussion for 1 Timothy 2:14

  • Jennifer for verse 14
    I think this verse explains everything that went wrong thanks to the feminist movement.
  • Adam was not deceived as this verse shows. This shows his deliberate disobedience to God. Adam tried to place the blame on God and the Eve, but this scripture clearly shows that Adam was not deceived, but Eve was.
  • Ricky Ricardo Rpuser for verse 14
    i beleive Adam knew his wife was dead and he eath to save her life -- Know greater love can a man have than laying down his life for his wife, and it worked . If he donot eat he would live , but his wife would died. This is the story of the cross HALLALUJHA
