comment What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean?
@LanceRoberts, try to understand that the historical-grammatical method is a rather popular one, and certainly valid at least in terms of the scope of this site. This question is simply employing that method on these verses.

comment What does it mean that “Scripture interprets Scripture”?
Ah, I see what you mean. My conservative protestant ears are so used to hearing of the rule of faith in connection with "scripture interprets scripture" that I forget that the concepts are not always so tightly linked.

comment What is a Horizon of Understanding and how can it be applied to understanding the Bible?
So, then, if my horizon and (say) Paul's horizon are separated by a couple thousand years, a language, culture, etc., are we hopelessly prone to misunderstanding each other? Or are you saying that by working to grasp the culture, I am moving toward Paul's horizon and thus I can understand his letters from his perspective.
