The Meaning of "The Husband of One Wife" in 1 Timothy 3:2
This paper examines eight possible interpretations of the phrase "husband of one wife" found in 1 Timothy 3:2. The merits and deficiencies of each approach are explored. The paper will conclude that the this phrase does not deal with the candidate's legal married status but rather pertains to fidelity as part of the candidate's character at the time he is considered for the office of elder. Although it is acceptable for the church to examine the candidate's past sins in order to ascertain the present content of his character, it is inappropriate for the church to use 1 Timothy 3:2 as a basis of holding a candidate's past sins against him in isolation of his current character.
