Chapter 2

Vince Giraldi dd an excellent job leading us through chapter 2 of 1 Timothy. He took time to prepare an outline below as well as a few questions that can be downloaded by clicking here. The questions are not difficult but are meant to help you to think and to retain more of God's word. The sermon is available here for you to listen to.  You can download the sermon here.


SUMMARY 

Having reminded Timothy of his charge to remain in Ephesus and "wage the good warfare", Paul now begins instructing Timothy in matters that involve the church.  He starts with a call to prayer, defining for whom and why we should pray.  His desire is that men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting (1-8).

Just as men are to pray everywhere, so women are to adorn themselves properly.  This involves modest apparel worn with propriety and moderation, but it also includes good works, as is proper for women professing godliness.  Also proper is women learning in silence (translated peaceable in verse 2) with all submission.  Therefore a woman is not permitted to teach or have authority over a man.  Basing this restriction on the relationship of Adam, Eve, and the fall, Paul reminds them they can be saved in their natural role of childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control (9-15).
