Most current research into 1 Tim 2:11-12 relates to the study of cultural context and to word and phrase studies. This work attempts to use a discourse analysis model to evaluate the epistle as a whole using a bottom-up interpretation of the epistle to determine the meaning of 1 Tim 2: 11-12 and how it relates to an egalitarian understanding of the text. My linguistic model will be based on Halliday's systemic-functional linguistic model of language. Adapted slightly to evaluate a dead language, this model will use the tripartite field -tenor-mode register method. The final sections will address the state of current research and how the discourse analysis model used in this thesis enlightens that research.
