"For years 1 Timothy 2:11-14 has been on the heart of an exegetical firestorm triggered via the continuing debate over what the Bible says approximately women's position in church and society. delivering new grist for an outdated mill, J.

This invocation of culture, Brown provocatively argues, is erroneous accurately since it is traditionally unfounded."
