comment How should 2 Cor 5:10 be interpreted, in light of Isa 43:25?
I don't think this is off-topic at all, but I do think it is a shade too broad. My suggestion would be to focus on one verse (eg either 2 Cor or Romans) and phrase it so it is clear that the question arises from the text, then reference the Hebrew Bible passages as relevant passages rather than having them front and centre.

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?
@Daи I don't think I said the link is textual did I? The test is whether the question arises from the text and for someone reasonably versed in the texts, I think it does, from either side. Connections obvious to most folk don't need to be spelt out, so all necessary dots are connected.

@Daи and they are only unrelated if one brings some other sort of preconception to the text, which I believe you are doing. I want both to be welcome here.

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?
@Mark the OP may be trying to develop a systematic theology or assuming that such is possible, but the question is not about a systematic theology, it is about these two texts alone.

@Dan mods can't 'just comment', the diamond carries weight regardless of our intentions. In the past you've admitted that all questions bring 'lots of theological presuppositions' to the texts: are you reverting to suggesting we try and pick a pseudo-neutral standpoint?

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?
@Daи the question does not say anyone 'needs' to reconcile anything, it asks how they would be reconciled. Many folk assume that these texts are inspired and don't contradict each other: I don't see any reason why that viewpoint (or it's corollary) should not be welcomed here as long are the texts are respected either way.
