Understanding 1 Timothy 2.12

Here's an insightful interview with New Testament scholar Andreas J. Köstenberger on the pivotal text regarding gender roles and the office of elder.  He says, 
Clearly, the role of women in the church is not an isolated instance but is part of a larger set of interrelated issues that will continue to engage the church for years to come. While not a first-order, salvation issue—no one is saved based on their view regarding women’s roles in the church—it is a matter of considerable practical and doctrinal consequence.
