Product Description

Who has authority in the church? What role do women play? These questions, as ancient as they are modern, were first posed in the Letters to Timothy. These epistles contain considerable controversy on topics including the place of women in the church, homosexuality, and "false teachers." This enlightening commentary features a new translation, introduction and commentary by Luke Timothy Johnson. Johnson offers a balanced discussion of Paul's letters, remains accessible to lay readers, and gives in-depth arguments for Paul's authorship.

Publisher's Description

The letters of Paul to Timothy, one of his favorite delegates, often make for difficult reading in today's world. They contain much that make modern readers uncomfortable, and much that is controversial, including pronouncements on the place of women in the Church and on homosexuality, as well as polemics against the so-called " false teachers." They have also been of a source of questions within the scholarly community, where the prevailing opinion since the nineteenth century is that someone else wrote the letters and signed Paul's name in order to give them greater authority.
Using the best of modern and ancient scholarship, Luke Timothy Johnson provides clear, accessible commentary that will help lay readers navigate the letters and better understand their place within the context Paul's teachings. Johnson's conclusion that they were indeed written by Paul himself ensures that this volume, like the other Anchor Bible Commentaries, will attract the attention of theologians and other scholars.

    This is a very important and excellent commentary because L.T.Johnson is refuting theacademic consensus that claimed that the letters were inauthentic, in a skilled and well-founded manner. Formerly, Johnson had been an adherent to the majority position, butduring the course of his teaching he has begun the process of reexamination which resulted in his devotion to the contrary position. His own approach may be sketched asfollows: The letters to Timothy are real rather than fictional letters, they are to beunderstood within the framework of Pauls ministry (he proposes Acts 20,1-3) and the socio-historical realities of the first century. Each letter addresses a particular situation and must therefore be considered individually rather than as part of a group.They have to be compared within the Pauline corpus, e.g. 1Tim with 1Cor. Concerning the lack of any literal coherence - the strange combination of personal paraenesis and instructions about the community - Johnson draws a comparison with the royal correspondence (mandata principis) of the Roman emperors, and shows that 1Tim belongs toa well-established epistolary form. Furthermore, I have highly appreciated Johnsons outlines of the "real-life occasions" and the setting of the letters, andhis amount of source material, especially fromHellenistic moral discourse. In my view a veryrecommendable commentary!
