Commentary
Rather than moving on to a new section of thought, Paul resumes his exhortation for all Christians to lead holy lives characterized by prayer (see Runge, Discourse Grammar , 2010, 44, for an argument for the resumptive οὖν). He takes back up the concepts of prayer (2:1,8) and godly living (2:2, 10), and explains the original exhortation (2:1) for both men (2:8) and women (2:9-15). Paul’s desire is that our lives exemplify godliness in a way that clearly communicates the eternal treasure that we have received. Men should not be angry or quarrel, and women should adorn themselves with inner beauty, for what is outer will pass away. In 2:11-15, Paul expands even further on a woman’s godliness. Women should not be shut away from sight, but should be brought into the church to learn, exemplifying in a particular way the godly quietness of life that all Christians should have (2:2). Learning “quietly” is further defined in 2:11b as “with all submissiveness.” Then Paul explains: women are not to teach or exercise authority over men, a pattern that is grounded in the order of creation (2:13). What was set in place in Genesis 2 is not heeded in Genesis 3, and thus the world was thrown into corruption. God created Adam first and then Eve, giving Adam the responsibility of caring for his wife (Genesis 2; 1 Timothy 2:13); but neither Eve nor Adam respected these roles. Adam was passive and allowed for his wife to be deceived; Eve was deceived and brought Adam into her own sin (Genesis 3; 1 Timothy 2:14). Now, as a result, both men and women are under sin and can only be rescued through faith in Christ Jesus. But, by the mercy of God, he has restored us to himself in the Son and we are now to live holy lives, following the order of creation, which has now also become the order of redemption (Ephesians 5:22-33).
