Virtually all scholars acknowledge the presence of opponents in 1 and 2 Timothy, but there is considerable disagreement over the identity of these opponents and the author's way of handling them.

In this volume, Hostility in the House of God: An Investigation of the Opponents in 1 and 2 Timothy, from the Bulletin for Biblical Research Supplement Series, pastor, author and theologian, Dr. Dillon T. Thornton provides a critique of a number of extant theories, including 'Gnostic,' Jewish, and proto-Montanist identifications, and develops a rigorous methodology for unmasking the opponents who appear in these letters.

He argues that the opponents came from within the Christian community in Ephesus and that their teaching is best described as an erroneous eschatological position that derived from the complexity of Paul's views. He also argues that the author of the books of Timothy engaged with the false teachers in significant ways throughout the letters, and draws attention to a number of literary and theological maneuvers that were intended to counteract the opponents' influence and/or to bolster the faithful community's confidence as it struggled against the opponents. Thornton's meticulous investigation sheds new light on the hostility that plays such a large part in 1 and 2 Timothy.
