Re: prophecy and 1 Tim. 1:18

Al, the prophecy is likely the same one mentioned in 4:14 - the charisma
was given to Timothy DIA PROFHTEIS with the laying on of hands.
Does 4:14 mean that prophecy occurs as they laid hands on Timothy, or did
the prophecy order them to lay hands on Timothy, along the lines
of Acts 13:2? Either way seems a possible reading.

I'm not sure what you mean by finding a way to translate the text so that
it "doesn't have this problem" - which problem, specifically?

By the way, I have a paper on the role of Christian prophecy in
the second century church. Email me if you want a copy.
