HT Jim West: Bob Edwards makes a case that Jerome botched 1 Tim 2:1-2

http://juniaproject.com/translation-1-timothy-212/

Edwards proposes that what has traditionally, since Jerome, been interpreted as women not being allowed to teach, was Paul writing a polemic specific to Ephesus against veneration of Atermis and Attis.  Now before all Reformed readers roll their eyes at this being from The Junia Project, at least give it a read.  :)

Steve Baugh addressed this several years back.

Thanks for the link. I had a feeling that someone had to have written a rebuttal but I suspect it's obvious I've been digging into local Puget Sound church history a bit. :)
