1 Timothy 2:11-12 is difficult. By this I do not mean it is difficult to swallow. Rather, I mean it is difficult to interpret, give the various theological spins attached. A few issues seem to be basic:
- Hermeneutically, how does one prioritize the issues of term, grammar, genre, and cultural/historical context?
- Theologically, how does one understand male headship (not mentioned here, but raised by interpreters)?
- Theologically, how does one view gender distinctions in light of Genesis 1-2? Genesis 3?
