Shepherding the Flock: The Pastoral Epistles of St. Paul the Apostle to Timothy and Titus

THE ORTHODOX BIBLE STUDY COMPANION SERIES

What is the abiding significance of the epistles of the Apostle Paul to Timothy and Titus? In them, Paul teaches about "how one ought to conduct oneself in the house of God," the Church (1 Tim. 3:15). As a loving shepherd, charged by Christ to care for the souls of men committed to him, St. Paul takes care to instruct others to shepherd the flock as well, and the wisdom born from such pastoral and loving care makes these epistles timeless and precious. These final three epistles of St. Paul remain as a testimony to his pastoral love and as an inspiration for those in the Church-both the shepherds and the flock- to walk in holiness and love themselves.

About the Orthodox Bible Study Companion Series:

This commentary was written for your grandmother and for your plumber. That is, it was written for the average layperson, for the nonprofessional who feels a bit intimidated by the presence of copious footnotes, long bibliographies, and all those other things which so enrich the lives of academics.

Working from a literal translation of the original Greek, this commentary examines the text section by section, explaining its meaning in everyday language. Written from an Orthodox and patristic perspective, it maintains a balance between the devotional and the exegetical, feeding both the heart and the mind.
