Overview

In this socio-rhetorical analytical commentary, Dr. Ben Witherington takes fresh look at the pastoral epistles and Johannine correspondence and provides an analysis of the documents in their socio-religious context discussing their provenance, character, and importance. Dr. Witherington focuses on the unique insights that arise through the social-rhetorical analysis. Throughout, he makes the case for Luke as Paul’s amanuensis for these letters, as well as a strenuous argument against New Testament pseudepigrapha.
