Seeking to bridge the existing gap between biblical studies and systematic theology, this distinctive series offers exegesis of the New Testament texts in close conversation with theological concerns. Written by respected scholars, THNTC volumes aim to help pastors, teachers, and students engage in deliberately theological interpretation of Scripture.
This theological commentary on 1&2 Timothy by Robert Wall powerfully demonstrates the ongoing relevance and authority of the Pastoral epistles for the church today. Wall uniquely employs an apostolic 'rule of faith' methodology for interpreting these texts as sacred Scripture. Three successive historical case studies by Richard Steele vividly instantiate key themes of the pastorals. This innovative yet relevant volume will help revive the interest of students, pastors, and other Christian leaders in the Pastoral Epistles.
