Quote of the Week – from I Suffer Not a Woman: Rethinking I Timothy 2:11-15 in Light of Ancient Evidence

Christ’s explicit command that the women should proclaim to the male disciples the news that he had risen is given secondary importance in comparison to this one Pauline mandate. The spiritual leadership of Hulda, Deborah, Miriam, Priscilla, Phoebe, and others is denigrated or denied. Yet it was Priscilla who “instructed Apollos more perfectly in the way of the Lord” (Acts 18:26) at Ephesus, the city to which this command was addressed. The apostle Paul enjoyed warm collegiality in the gospel with the women he called “fellow laborers.”
