comment “Slave” vs. “servant” in Colossians
While an examination of Roman slavery practices would be too broad for this format, I am curious if this related question is a duplicate (at least of parts of this question) or not?

au contraire, you earned my upvote ;) - in the future, note that you can also flag the question and when you have enough rep you'll be able to vote to close as a duplicate as well. Thanks for answering and pointing out where the OP can get more information - this answer is helpful.

comment How do you reconcile I Tim 2 saying that a woman is not to teach a man and the account of Priscilla and Aquila teaching Apollos who was a man?
@JackDouglas we'll have to agree to disagree. Thematic connections on the basis of systematic theology are inherently theological in my opinion. If they both purported to describe the same historical event that would be different.

Thanks for your answer, but in this case I think this is actually a duplicate since the other post answers the question.

comment What did people do with children in biblical times when people gathered as a congregation?
@adipro I have reopened this on the basis of your edit and my slight revision edit (my edit mostly just added a tag, reworded a couple things to make them more succinct, and linked to the translation). Note that you do not have an exclusively Christian audience, so I changed 'church' to 'religious gathering' as 'church' would be anachronistic for a text in Deuteronomy.

comment What is a Busybody? 2 Thessalonians 3:11
So does the phrase in the question adequately translate it or not? Please put more effort into answering here. Think essay/paper/publication, not comment.

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. Using first person plural language when referencing the audiences of ancient texts moves from describing the text itself to prescribing norms that are expressed as binding on readers and therefore imposes this application upon the reader.

comment How do you reconcile I Tim 2 saying that a woman is not to teach a man and the account of Priscilla and Aquila teaching Apollos who was a man?
By your own standard, this doesn't start from one of these texts and show it's work for connecting them. It assumes the connection which will encourage answers to proof text the entire New Testament thematically rather than dealing with a single text (which has already happened).

comment How do you reconcile I Tim 2 saying that a woman is not to teach a man and the account of Priscilla and Aquila teaching Apollos who was a man?
Again, the underlying issue here is one of the application of Christian theology to the role of women in the Church, which is evident by Tina's answers/comments. There is no textual connection, only a theological/practical one. There are cases where there is also a textual connection (such as Acts describing events in Paul's letters), and in those cases good answers can support or challenge the historicity of either account. In this case, the connection isn't textual.

(But the texts are only related if one brings a Christian systematic theological framework to the text)
