Where may we go to find answers to questions concerning how a church is supposed to function, the qualifications of church officers, the priorities of pastoral ministry, the role of females in the church, the importance of the Christian home, and the biblical pattern of church government? The New Testament canon contains three personal letters penned by the apostle Paul addressing these and many more questions. The Pastoral Epistles to Timothy and Titus contain pastoral and ecclesiastical counsel for the church in all ages.
First Timothy and Titus were likely composed during the same time period, from Macedonia. Second Timothy was written from the Mamertine prison in Rome, shortly before Paul’s death. The tone of these three epistles is more personal than Paul’s other letters.
Great encouragement and guidance for gospel ministers is here. And, for the church that seeks to conform to Scripture more than cultural trends, the Pastoral Epistles contain indispensible wisdom.
