Reading K's post sparked some additional thoughts on 1 Tim 2:13-14 which may have some relevance.
1 Tim 2:13-14
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
I think it is interesting to note the difference the role gender plays in the creation of mankind in Genesis 1 and the creation of the family unit in Genesis 2.
So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
In the account of the creation of mankind in Genesis 1, Scripture does not give any creation order or any primacy to males.
God creates both males and females as his image bearers, and God gives his image bearers (both male and female) dominion over his creation.
So from the perspective of the creation of mankind as a whole in Genesis 1, men and women are given equal dominion over creation.
In Genesis 2 we have the story of two specific people, Adam and Eve.
Of particular importance in Genesis 2 is The relationship between Adam and Eve and their relationship with God. The story of Adam and Eve in Genesis 2 leads up to verse 24.
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
The focus of Genesis 2 is the creation of the first family. And within the context of a family unit that is built on the the foundation of relationship with God, gender specific roles are very relevant, biologically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Paul's comments in 1 Timothy 2:13-14 are based on the background of roles within the family unit established in Genesis 2.
Ok... so what's going on in 1 Tim 2:13-14.
In 1 Tim 2:13 Paul tells us that Adam was not deceived.
God had communicated directly with Adam concerning his rules for the Garden.
It was Adam's role as spiritual leader in the family unit to communicate that information to his wife Eve.
When Satan tempted Eve he misrepresented the rules that God had given and thus was able to deceive Eve.
In 1 Tim 2:13-14, Paul is telling us that the failure of Adam (who was not deceived) involved not adequately teaching the rules God had given to his wife Eve which left her vulnerable to the deception of Satan.
So Adam (who was formed first, who was not deceived) failed in his responsibility as spiritual leader of his family to teach his wife which lead to Eve being deceived by Satan.
This relates directly to the statement Paul makes in 1 Tim 2:11 that women in the church should should be taught.
The church should not follow the example of Adam who failed to adequately teach his wife about what God had communicated to him.
