Sample text

Who are these characters? What have they done to their faith? What does it mean that “Paul” will turn them over to Satan? There is no hint in Acts or the authentic Pauline letters that Paul knew men named Hymenaeus and Philetus, although their focus on the resurrection in 2 Timothy 2:18 is not dissimilar from problems Paul encountered elsewhere (1 Cor. 15:12). There is an Alexander in Acts 19:33 who emerges and disappears quite suddenly in the chaos of a dispute instigated by one Demetrius, a silversmith of Ephesus; but his identity, and his relationship with the Alexander of the Pastorals, is entirely unclear.

And Erasmus, who assumes in his reading of Titus 3:1 that “Paul” envisioned something of a necessary opposition between church and state, writes that “every order which does not in any way diminish our godliness has to be obeyed. They take away our wealth; the treasury of godliness increases. They drive us into exile; Christ is everywhere” (Paraphrases 1993: 64). Others, however, prefer a greater, and more politically charged, clarity. Milton acknowledges “Paul’s” instructions “that prayers should be made for kings .

85–86). The absence of a specific localization for prayerful gathering provides many readers with evidence of Christianity’s evolution from what was taken to be its more limited Jewish origins. Jews were allowed to pray only in 1 Timothy 2 41 Jerusalem, according to such commentators, but “Paul” and “the practices of grace” (Theodoret, Comm. 215) legitimate the use of all earthly space for prayer (Chrysostom, Hom. 432). Although, in context, this verse seems to envision a congregation of men at prayer, without the women, Origen considers this text especially (although not pleasantly) applicable to women.
