  • Discuss the authorship and dating issues associated with these epistles and establish an informed opinion on this controversy.
  • Name and explain the concerns that led Paul to write each of the pastoral epistles.
  • List qualities God requires in church leaders.

Personal Reflection

As you proceed through this lesson have the following question in mind.
What did 1 Timothy 2:11-14 mean for the role of women in the context for which it was written (i.e., the church at Ephesus which Timothy was leading)? What are the implications of 1 Timothy 2:11-14 for the role of women in the church today?
