Divergent, Insurgent or Allegiant? 1 Timothy 5:1–2 and the Nature of God’s Household
Southeastern Theological Review
This study asks how Paul’s household conception of the church in 1 Timothy 5:1–2 compares to the social norms characteristic of the Greco-Roman household. His study argues that Paul is extending a pre-existing, theologically shaped notion of God’s household as he guides Timothy.
