Day 70~ 1 Tim 1-3
Here’s a tidbit of information for you;
1&2 Timothy and Titus are letters that are addressed to pastors, not to churches. Therefore, they are called the Pastoral Letters. They are believed to be written near the end of Paul’s life, so that is why they are placed here in our chronological reading.
In line with what I mentioned yesterday about learning, this verse stood out to me today, “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.” (2:11)
I thought my commentary made an interesting point. “Women were generally far less educated then men. Jewish women were far less likely to be trained in the law. In such context, the admonition for women to ‘learn in quiteness’ might prove more striking for its emphasis on learning than for an emphasis on doing so quietly, which was considered the appropriate way for all novices to learn.”
I love that way of looking at it! That means women should be learning too (which is something I love to do!), just as the men should be learning! Love it!!!
