Lec 19 - The Household Paul: The Pastorals Introduction to New Testament

Lec 19 - The Household Paul: The Pastorals Introduction to New Testament (RLST 152) In the undisputed Pauline epistles, marriage is seen as a way to extirpate sexual desire - neither as a means for procreation nor as the preferred social status. The Pastoral Epistles, written to instruct in the pastoring of churches and appointing of church offices, presents quite un-Pauline attitudes. In the Pastoral Epistles, the church, rather than an ecclesia, becomes a household, a specifically patriarchal structure in which men hold offices and women are not to have authority over them. They present a pro-family, anti-ascetic message in contrast to the Pauline epistles. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Marriage, Family, Sex, and Women in Paul's Letters 21:01 - Chapter 2.
