Abstract In order to follow the argument of 1 Tim, one must be familiar not only with Greco-Roman culture but also with traditional Jewish interpretations of Torah. This study (a) discusses Jewish overtones in the context, (b) argues that 2:15 appropriates early rabbinic traditions about why women die in childbirth to underscore the importance of feminine virtues, and (c) responds to possible objections.
