In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talked with Phillip Jensen at his Two Ways Ministries office in the heart of Sydney, Australia. Over a lifetime, Jensen’s ministry has centered around exposition of the Scriptures. He served as chaplain for the University of New South Wales, offered leadership to the Katoomba Christian Convention, founded Matthias Media, and most recently served as Dean of Sydney at St. Andrews Cathedral.To teach 1 Timothy, Jensen suggests we begin not at the outset of the letter but at the center, where Paul’s purpose for writing is stated clearly (3:15) and should therefore inform our teaching throughout. Jensen challenges our preconceived understandings of “the mystery of godliness,” and provides a framework for understanding Paul’s teaching in 1 Timothy 2 about the proper behavior of men and women in the church.
