The Pastoral Letters—1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus—have made an enduring contribution to understanding the role of pastors in the church. With a spirited devotion to the text, Robert Yarbrough helps unlock the meaning of these short but rich letters in this commentary.

In keeping with the character of Pillar New Testament Commentary volumes, The Letters to Timothy and Titus offers a straightforward reading of these texts. Their primary concerns—God, salvation, and the pastoral task—remain central to Yarbrough’s thorough and comprehensive exegesis. Engaging with the best scholarship and resources, Yarbrough shows how these letters are as relevant today as they were to the early Christians.

Top Highlights

“Angry men passionate about being right are a primary threat to acceptable worship, as well as to the wider relational dynamics that should contribute to harmony in Christian homes and congregations.” (Page 164)

“‘Pastoral care occurs not only in individuated conversation but also through preaching, a public task intrinsic to the care of souls.’” (Page 4)

“‘Soul care occurs within a community whose primary corporate act is the praise of God’s care.’” (Page 5)

“In response, it should be noted that, whether we view 2:1 or 2:8 as the head verse of this passage, both have a universal purview: ‘prayers … for all people’ in v. 1, and ‘everywhere’ (NIV) or ‘in every place’ (ESV) in v. 8. The author gives no hint that his charge to Timothy (1:3, 5) is so specific to Ephesus that what he says about prayer and men and women in worship would not have applied in other settings.” (Page 177)

“To be blameless as a pastoral candidate in Titus 1:6–7, therefore, could have to do with living in the present in a way that is consistent with what the grace of the gospel confers on those who believe and receive it.” (Page 480)

    At the beginning of my sermon series through 1 Timothy I leaned on Kostenberger and Knight, but about halfway through I stumbled upon Yarbrough's work. It has become the most significant to me in sermon preparation. While I still consult (and appreciate) the others (along with Ryken), this commentary blends together the scholarly and sermonic in a way that was unexpectedly balanced. Ryken is very sermonic, Kostenberger's is a fine summary, and Knight pulls apart some of the Greek (at a low to mid-level Greek student level) and offers fine scholarly considerations. But Yarbrough pulls all these threads together in a wonderfully balanced and ever-so-helpful way.
