The Eden Podcast with Bruce C. E. Fleming

BEST OF Season Three! 1 Timothy 2:8-3:16

Episode Summary

Paul’s reference to the Garden of Eden in 1 Timothy 2 contains several surprises worth paying attention to!!

Episode Notes

Should women teach men in church? People focus only on 1 Timothy 2:12. But wait! There's more!

Paul is obviously very familiar with the Hebrew text of Genesis 3:15-17. In that passage there are two singular collective singular nouns used: "offspring" and "pregnancy." Paul adds a third in 1 Timothy 2:15a with his reference to "the Childbearing."

If any verse deserves our focus in 1 Timothy 2:8-3:16 the focus should be on 1 Timothy 3:1a! It is Jesus, the faithful Word, who saves and restores to ministry anyone who desires that good work!
