    Pray and Preach

    And seeing the multitudes, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and downcast like sheep without a shepherd.

    Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

    Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest."

    (Matt 9:36-38)

    Adornment (“kosmeo”)

    …the temple…was adorned with beautiful stones and votive gifts

    (Luke 21:5)

    The foundation stones of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone.

    (Rev 21:19)

    And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.

    (Rev 21:2)

    And let not your adornment be merely external-- braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands.

    (1 Pet 3:3-5)

    Let the woman learn…

    • Jewish tradition at the time of the Second Temple:

      • “May the words of Torah be burned, than that they should be handed over to women.”

  • Sota 10a

    • “Rabbi Eliezer says: Whoever teaches his daughter Torah teaches her obscenity.”

  • Sota 21b

    “Silence” – Not Arguing Back

    And when they heard this, they quieted down, and glorified God, saying, "Well then…”

    (Acts 11:18)

    We…began begging him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, "What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but even to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."

    And since he would not be persuaded, we fell silent, remarking, "The will of the Lord be done!"

    (Acts 21:12-14)

    Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to work in quiet fashion and eat their own bread.

    (2 Thess. 3:12)

    But let (your adornment) be…a gentle and quiet spirit

    (1 Pet 3:4)

    Possible Objections – part 1

    • Priscilla and Aquila teaching Apollos

      • Argument from silence

      • Not teaching with authority, simply clarifying a few facts

    • Just Paul’s personal opinion – we can take it or leave it

    • v8 – Greek has sense of “I command”

    • v12 - Same word in 1Cor 14:34, to which he then adds “just as the Law also says” and “the things which I write to you are the Lord’s commandment” (v37)

    • Only applies to the wives (“gune”)

    • Does not fit context:

      • v8 would mean Paul could not pray (not a husband)

      • v9 would imply unmarried free to dress immodestly


    1 timothy behaviour in god s house

    Possible Objections – part 2

    • Do not “usurp authority” – OK to be given it

      • Based on faulty KJV translation

      • Most translations simply say “have authority”

    • Only applies to Ephesus

    • Similar instructions to Corinth

    • In both cases, Paul proves his point from Creation and Eden (1Tim 2:13-14; 1Cor 11:8-9). Therefore this is a universal principle.

    • Only Sunday Morning

    • True of 1Cor 11-14 context, but not here:

      • “in every place” (v8)

      • Anger free prayers and modesty are required at all times, not just Sunday morning
