OK, I freely admit that football season here in the states has slowed down my progress on 1 Timothy.
In one sense, this is good. It takes time to think through the project and come up with more questions to ask and more options to consider.
As an aside, I happened to listen to a video today and just had to post up the quote because it seems to apply to the 1 Timothy study quite well!
“If you want to understand the really early traditions look at the people on the edges about a hundred years later because as the tradition norms, as it becomes more normal and less radical, those radical people in the beginning are pushed toward the outside and so are their ideas.”
