Product Description

J.M. Holmes argues that "regardless of the identity of the author of the Pastorals, several contextual, linguistic, grammatical and literary components in 1 Tim 2.9-15 have universally been either ignored or misunderstood."This study was formerly a Ph.D thesis entitled '1 Timothy 2:9-15: A Reexamination of Four Exegetical Devices' submitted at La Trobe University in March 1995. Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Series #196. Studies in New Testament Greek 7.

Publisher's Description

Holmes examines four exegetical devices employed by all sides in the debate on 1 Tim. 2.9-15, proposing that together they create a 'whirlwind' effect which obscures the text's meaning. She concludes that (1) the immediate context is general, not ecclesial; (2) background often reconstructed from passages elsewhere in the Pastorals is misleading; (3) comparison with 1 Cor. 14.34-35 can similarly mislead; and (4) the conjunction gar ('for') has been allowed unduly to dominate interpretation. The writer of the letter, it is argued, has been misunderstood since very early in the Christian era, his intention having been simply to moderate women's everyday behaviour in ways that parallel the behaviour he requires of men.
