N.T. Wright on 1 Timothy 2:12

I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she is to keep silent” (1 Timothy 2:12 NRSV).

“I don’t think I exaggerate when I suggest that this passage above all others has been the sheet anchor for those who want to deny women a place in the ordained ministry of the church, with full responsibilities for preacher, presiding at the Eucharist, and exercising leadership within congregations and indeed dioceses.”  –N.T. Wright, Surprised by Scripture, p. 78
