    Tim, I agree with what you have written here. In regard to what is going on in Ephesus and how that impacts what Paul says in chapter 2, here are my thoughts on that – http://wineskins.org/2019/08/26/what-do-women-teachers-deception-and-childbearing-have-in-common/

    Keep up the great work!

      Thank you Matt. I had read that article, but had forgotten about it. Very helpful.

    We enjoyed these verses in our Bible Study today. John 20:17-18 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” 18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

    Interesting that the Lord gave this word to a woman to deliver to the men.

      Yes, Vern, that’s some of what I talked about in my previous post. Women have an important role to play in evangelism, personal teaching, and witnessing. I think Jesus’ ministry makes that very clear.

    interesting points, Tim. Most of the applications we fuss about in our churches are serving roles, not leadership roles. Therefore, allowing women in roles that are purely service, like serving communion, should not be an issue.
