- About the relationship between teaching and authority, I think you guys are entering into a classic case of “over-exegesis”! Semantic domains and relations and gramatical structures are certianly helpful, but the context is enough here. No need to jump into the type of diachronic lexical studies to understand that Paul see a relationship between the two. They are different aspect of the same thing: leadership in the church as Paul is talking about it.

Re: NETS, it appears that the Greek translator of the verse misread t'shuqah (desire) as t'shubah (return).
Re: Douay Rheims, IIRC, we don't know why Jerome translated the verse this way in his Vulgate (which is the basis of Douay Rheims). It corresponds to neither the Hebrew t'shuqah nor the Greek apostrophê.
I posed this question to B-Greek awhile ago.
If context is enough how come there is no prohibition on women teaching men in the Old Covenant but there is NOW in the NC?
