    Reading

    1 Timothy 2:1–15 ESV
    First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time. For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.

    Not because of favourism, or because of their goodness or characterists (e.g. Nero)
    1 Timothy 2:3–4 ESV
    This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
    His Name - God our Saviour
    desires all peoples to be saved & to come to the knowledge of the truth
    without distinction of rank, race and nationality
    1 Timothy 2:5–6 ESV
    For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
    One God
    One Mediator (Christ Jesus)
    Jew & Gentile / Slave & free
    Salvation & Ransom
    Jesus establishes peace & reveals it to them
    Proper Time - God’s eternal plan
    1 Timothy 2:7 ESV
    For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
    Paul reminds us of his calling by Jesus
    Paul reflects on the false claims of false teachers against him
    He is a “herald”
    Elders (Pastors) equally are called not to “represent” a group or “majority”

    Behave Appropriately

    1 Timothy 2:8–10 ESV
    I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.
    Men should pray
    Remember Paul’s emphasis on the equality of the sexes
    Galatians 3:28 ESV
    There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
    return…
    1 Timothy 2:8 ESV
    I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
    Men - Priesthood
    Gentiles entered into the church
    Paul assumes women to be present in the assembly!
    Prayer Postures in Scripture:
    Standing - Reverence
    Hands spread out of lifted heavenward - humble expectancy
    Bowing the Head - submission
    Lifting eye Heavenward - help comes from Jehovah alone
    Kneeling - humility & adoration
    Falling down with the face ib the ground - awe in His divine presence
    But never slumped!!!!
    Paul is though referring to the inner attitude of the soul
    1 Timothy 2:9–10 ESV
    likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.
    Paul does not refer to beautification!
    It was about vanity (conceit)
    not to show off
    not a fashion show
    not old-fashioned or awkward
    not a pretended modesty
    avoid all extremes
    braids, gold, pearls of costly attire - purely status symbols
    but dress with godliness and good works

    Imparting Knowledge - preaching

    1 Timothy 2:11–12 ESV
    Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.
    women must not dominate
    1 Timothy 2:13–14 ESV
    For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
    see judgement
    Genesis 3:15 ESV
    I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
    emnity - opposition
    Genesis 3:16 ESV
    To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be contrary to your husband, but he shall rule over you.”
    contrary - inclind to disagree
    return...
    1 Timothy 2:13–14 ESV
    For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
    Adam was called to lead in righteousness
    Eve was deceived and lead
    Adam become submissive
    1 Timothy 2:15 ESV
    Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.
    Eve - saved through childbearing
    Women - continue in faith, love & holiness with self-control
