Preston Sprinkle

Theology in the Raw

Lynn is one of my favorite New Testament scholars! She serves as Provost and Dean of Academic Affairs of Northern Seminary in Lisle, Illinois. She also teaches New Testament and leads the development of DMin and MA programs in women’s studies, and the Women’s Center for Leadership at Northern Seminary. Lynn received her bachelor’s degree from Messiah College in Grantham, PA, and my Ph.D. in New Testament and Christian Origins from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. She’s written several books including in depth commentaries on Philippians, Ephesians, and Romans 

In this conversation, we talk about her book Women in the World of the Earliest Christians, which talks about the 1st century Roman context and its illumination on certain New Testament passages about women; specifically, 1 Timothy 2.
