A Woman’s Place - 5

What Paul Really Said


The key text 1 tim 2 11 15

The key text – 1 Tim 2:11-15

11A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.

12I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.

13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.

15But women will be saved through childbearing— if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

1 Timothy 2:11-15 (NIV)


Traditional view

Traditional View

‘In public worship it becomes the woman to be silent and submissive – that is part of her true dignity – not to try to take over the reins and direct the man.

The tragedy of the Fall establishes the general truth that a woman is more easily deceived than a man; so it is out of place for her to take the lead in settling either doctrine or practice’

AM Stibbs, Senior New Testament Lecturer, Oak Hill College New Bible Commentary Revised (1970) IVP


The nub of the problem

The nub of the problem

‘Many evangelicals view all biblical passages about the role and ministry of women though the lens of 1 Timothy 2:12. It becomes the key verse on women, the one on which all others turn’. Kroeger & Kroeger, 1992

Text – What does it really say?

‘No prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit’ 2 Peter 1:20-21

Background to ephesus

Background to Ephesus


Worship of false gods

Worship of false gods

A silversmith named Demetrius, who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought in a lot of business for the craftsmen there. 25 He called them together, along with the workers in related trades, and said: “You know, my friends, that we receive a good income from this business. 26 And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all. 27 There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited; and the goddess herself, who is worshiped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty.”  28 When they heard this, they were furious and began shouting: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” 29 Soon the whole city was in an uproar.

Acts 19:24-28

‘And is it true that the understanding of this verse is dependent on the translation of just one verb which is used only once in the entire New testament?’
