Back to Eden! 1 Timothy 2-3. The Big Picture

Let’s focus on 1 Timothy 2:8-3:16 because this is the heart of Paul’s instructions to Timothy on how to correct wayward overseers at Ephesus and even today. Misinterpretation of this passage is the source of much bad teaching and practice regarding women in ministry and in the Christian home. Did Paul teach that women are to be silent in church? Did Paul teach that Adam and all men have priority over Eve and all women? Did Paul teach that only men can be pastors? No, no and no! Not here in...

Sheila and Bruce for 316 Day 2022!

TAKE The Eden Course! Here's the LINK: From the interview on The Eden Podcast: Sheila: “When you create a situation where men’s opinions matter more, and where his having leadership means that she is not to question him, it creates a situation where she can’t bring up marriage issues that she sees. Or she can’t be ‘iron sharpening iron’ with him which the Bible calls us to be. That slowly becomes an entitlement on his part,...


Eph 5:33-6:9 "It's Mutual!"

IT'S MUTUAL! This was Paul's BIG IDEA based on the revelation of the Great Mystery in Ephesians 5:32. In Ephesians 5:33-6:9 Paul presents Part 2 of his illustrative passage on How to be filled with the Spirit (5:18). In verses 19a and 21 he explained that believers teach and correct one another through their speaking and their submitting. Then starting with verse 22 all the way through 6:9 he illustrates how this is done. Christ is the supreme example. As Christ LOVED the church and GAVE...


Eph 5:25-32 Christ's Example.

Are these verses teaching us primarily about marriage? Are they not rather teaching us primarily about Christ and the church? Jesus is one with the church in a joint-body. Jesus is the Savior who gave himself for the church. Jesus loves the church with agape love. Examples of Christ's care are brought up by Paul using other word pictures. For example the way wives and husbands care for and love one another. For example the way a person cares for his or her own body. In this passage we...


Beyond Eden. Spouses Submitting

The meaning of Ephesians 5:22 is discovered in the matrix it is found in. Briefly, Paul turns to the relationship of married Spirit-filled believers to demonstrate how all members of the church build up one another. Christian wives submit to the teaching and admonition they receive from their Spirit-filled husbands. And reciprocally, Christian husbands submit to the teaching and admonition they receive from their Spirit-filled wives. The discussion in this Episode draws from the book...

On this BONUS episode I try mention as many individuals and groups as I can. GO DEEPER:


Beyond Eden. Spirit-filled speaking

"Vertical submission" is NOT what Paul teaches in Ephesians 5:19 and following. He replaces that with "horizontal submission." Christ is our model. Sadly, most people have the over/under idea of vertical submission in mind as they read these verses. Paul encourages Christians to teach and admonish one another (verse 5:19a). Then they are to submit to this teaching and correction they are receiving from one another (verse 21). This is a horizontal RECIPROCAL SUBMISSION. This is how...


Ephesians 5-6. The Detailed Picture!

What does it mean to be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18b)? Paul gives a detailed teaching on this which may surprise many people (Ephesians 5:19-21 and following). Christians reciprocally teach and correct one another and then submit themselves to one another's teaching and correction. These are the linked one-another points in Ephesians 5:19a and 21. Additionally, they worship and thank their Lord and God. These points found in verses 19b and 20. This analysis of the text of...


Beyond Eden, Ephesians 5-6. The Big Picture.

Most people look to these verses for teaching on headship of the male and submission by the female. These ideas are not taught here, nor in any of the 7 key passages on women and men related to Genesis 3:16. Get a copy of the book Beyond Eden, Ephesians 5-6 and follow along in these episodes as we discuss the questions in the Study Guides that accompany each chapter!

BEST OF Season 5! The Eden Podcast Story

God didn't curse Eve (or Adam) or limit woman in any way! This good news is the true message of Genesis 3:16. The Eden Podcast and the accompanying books in The Eden Book Series tell the Tru316 Message of hope and victory! Listen to a number of wonderful testimonies from listeners of The Eden Podcast. They are eloquent!


BEST OF Season Four! 1 Cor 11, 14 & 1 Peter 3

1 Corinthians 11:4-6 is a quotation of other people's words. Paul then refutes them. 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 is another quotation of other people's words. Paul refutes them too. Paul does not restrict women from ministry or limit women in any way. In 1 Peter 3:1-7, Peter talks about unequally yoked spouses. These words apply only to spouses in that situation. A spouse is the weaker partner without Christ. Go Deeper.


BEST OF Season Three! 1 Timothy 2:8-3:16

Should women teach men in church? People focus only on 1 Timothy 2:12. But wait! There's more! Paul is obviously very familiar with the Hebrew text of Genesis 3:15-17. In that passage there are two singular collective singular nouns used: "offspring" and "pregnancy." Paul adds a third in 1 Timothy 2:15a with his reference to "the Childbearing." If any verse deserves our focus in 1 Timothy 2:8-3:16 the focus should be on 1 Timothy 3:1a! It is Jesus, the faithful Word, who saves and restores...


BEST OF Season Two! Ephesians 5:15-6:9

We must first find the limits of the well-built passage in Ephesians 5-6. Then we can notice the main parts of this long passage. And only thirdly can we look at words, phrases and verses in their appropriate places in the development of thought in the whole passage. The Book of Ephesians in chapters 4-6 is written in six major Sections. each one starting with "therefore walk." In Ephesians 5-6 the start is in verse 15 which begins with "Therefore walk ...." The next Section begins in 6:10...


BEST OF Season One! Genesis 2-3

Have you read Chapter 1 and its Study Guide in The Book of Eden, Genesis 2-3? It is taken from this very first Episode of The Eden Podcast. Dr.Joy Fleming cleared away the translation errors contained in our modern language versions. She shows God didn't curse Eve at all. Two words God said in Line 1 of 3:16 linked her with God's words to the man and to the serpent tempter. The link to the man came in the third Hebrew word: 'itsabon, or "sorrowful-toil." This same word God spoke to the man...
