Overview

Holmes examines four exegetical devices employed by countering sides in the debate regarding 1 Timothy 2:9-15. She proposes that together these differing positions actually create a 'whirlwind' which obscures the text's meaning. Her investigation considers whether (1) the immediate context is general, not ecclesial; (2) the background reconstructed from passages elsewhere in the Pastoral letters is misleading; (3) comparison of 1 Timothy 2:9-15 with 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 can similarly be misleading; and (4) whether the conjunction gar ('for') has been allowed unduly to dominate interpretation. It is herein argued that Paul has been misunderstood since very early in the Christian era, his intentions having been simply to moderate women's everyday behavior in ways that parallel the behavior he requires of men.
