The Pastoral Epistles: A Commentary on the Greek Text

Baker Academic

Leading New Testament scholar Stanley Porter offers a comprehensive commentary on the Pastoral Epistles that features rigorous biblical scholarship and emphasizes Greek language and linguistics.

This book breaks new ground in its interpretation of these controversial letters by focusing on the Greek text and utilizing a linguistically informed exegetical method that draws on various elements in contemporary language study. Porter pays attention to the overall argument of the Pastoral Epistles while also analyzing word meanings and grammatical structures to tease out the textual meaning. Porter addresses major exegetical issues that arise in numerous highly disputed passages and–while attentive to the history of scholarship on First Timothy, Second Timothy, and Titus–often takes untraditional or innovative positions to blaze a new path forward rather than adopt settled answers.
