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.

    I am thankful that God has given me a heart to seek his wisdom, and not the wisdom of men.
    Those that walk in the light, love the light, they love words that edify. Those that walk in darkness, hate the light, they love words that destroy, and bring wrath.
