Beyond that, everything is speculative. lt is not at all clear that there were "orders" of women's ministries, including widows. The stance taken in this commentary is that there were women who served the church in some capacity, perhaps including leadership (1 Tim. 3:11), but that there Introduction 23 was no order of widows who were enrolled and had prescribed duties (see disc.

Thus the myths and genealogies are seen to refer to the speculative cosmologies of the later Gnostics with their systems of aeons (spiritual beings) that emanate from God (the Father of the All), such as one finds in Valentinus.

What needs to be noted, finally, is that, as before, much of what is said about Christian behavior in these letters is a direct reflection of the behavior of the false teachers; and it is likewise their presence that dictates the nature of what is said.
