Women in Ministry

Too good not to share: Dr.Tony Evans’ teaching may be found on your Alexa at ONE PLACE by asking Alexa to play “Dr.Tony Evans,The Alternative, from One Place” If you’ve not yet discovered ONE PLACE on Alexa, this is the place you may listen to most any of your favorite preachers any time you choose. Tony Evans started the program THE URBAN ALTERNATIVE, which has since grown to wider audiences in THE ALTERNATIVE. He may also be found on YOU TUBE. This one is too good not to share, as most of them are, however this particular one is being shared here today::

This was a TV broadcast on May 14, 2023

Here a good place to explain and expound on 1 Tim 2:12

1 Tim 2:12

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. KJV

Notice here it does not use the plural, MEN, which would mean all men;

Notice here it does not say “A” man, meaning any man.;

Notice here it definitely says THE man. a specific man., meaning the husband.

Youngs Literal Translation confirms this by spelling it out:

12 and a woman I do not suffer to teach, nor to rule a husband, but to be in quietness,

The GENEVA BIBLE which pre-dates the KJV uses the same identical wording as YOUNGS LITERAL TRANSLATION as above.

It should also be noticed that First Timothy deals primarily with proper order in church meetings.. As does a similar instruction in 1Cor 14:34.refer to previously disordered meetings. See additional column here titled :Should Women Speak in Church, which gives a pretty good picture of the situation which Paul was addressing at the time.

With this said, let us go up and listen to how Dr. Tony Evans explains this so very well…
