A volume from the Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation series, Andreas Kvstenberger's commentary on 1-2 Timothy and Titus explores how both books contribute to the theology of Scripture as a whole. He provides a discussion of introductory matters, including historical setting and literary structure, as well as forward an exegetical treatment of all relevant passages in a succinct commentary-style format.
About the Series
The Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation Commentary series explores the theology of the Bible in considerable depth, spanning both Testaments. Authors come from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, though all affirm the inerrancy and inspiration of Scripture. United in their high view of Scripture, and in their belief in the underlying unity of Scripture, which is ultimately grounded in the unity of God himself, each author explores the contribution of a given book or group of books to the theology of Scripture as a whole. While conceived as stand-alone volumes, each volume thus also makes a contribution to the larger whole. All volumes provide a discussion of introductory matters, including the historical setting and the literary structure of a given book of Scripture.

Also included is an exegetical treatment of all the relevant passages in succinct commentary-style format. The major contribution of each volume, however, is a thorough discussion of the most important themes of the biblical book in relation to the canon as a whole. This format, in itself, would already be a valuable contribution to biblical theology. But there are other series that try to accomplish a survey of the Bibles theology as well. What distinguishes the present series is its orientation toward Christian proclamation. As a result, the ultimate purpose of this set of volumes is not exclusively, or even primarily, academic. Rather, we seek to relate biblical theology to our own lives and to the life of the church. Our desire is to equip those in Christian ministry who are called by God to preach and teach the precious truths of Scripture to their congregations.
The author of Commentary on 1-2 Timothy and Titus is Andreas J. Köstenberger.
"Andreas Köstenberger is a first-rate New Testament scholar, and his commentary has much to commend it. Pastors and teachers will greatly benefit from this fine exegetical and theological tool."
- Armin D. Baum, Professor für Neues Testament und Prorektor für Forschung, Freie Hochschule für Theologie, Giessen, Germany
"Köstenberger is to be commended for his careful biblical-theological method. I know no other major attempt to catalogue the theology of the Pastoral Epistles in this way."
- Craig S. Keener, F. M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary
"While there are a number of good commentaries on the Pastoral Epistles, there are few that cover all the bases: scholarly, theological, pastoral, insightful, practical, and encouraging. But Andreas Köstenbergers new volume is all of these. It is now my go-to commentary on these important books and is sure to be the standard resource for pastors and scholars in generations to come."
- Michael J. Kruger, president and professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, NC
"This commentary makes a contribution both to scholarship and the churchs mission, a resource that will enrich the messages and messengers who support and sustain our experience of Christian existence. As a biblical scholar and a parish priest, I most heartily recommend this book."
- Philip H. Towner, director and dean of the Nida Institute for Biblical Scholarship at American Bible Society; assistant rector, St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church, NYC
"This should become a first go-to resource for advanced students in their research and for pastors concerned to do full justice to these writings in their ministerial labors and exposition of the Scriptures."
- Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary
The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Great New Commentary SeriesSeptember 23, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are many phenomenal commentaries, yet they usually fall into a segmented categories, yet the new series Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation, breaks the mold. For it is not only scholarly, pastoral, and insightful, but also extremely practical. This series is a planned 40 volume series, produced by B&H Academic and is edited by T. Desmond Alexander, Andreas J. Kstenberger, and Thomas R. Schreiner, and has just added its second entry.
This second entry is titled, 1-2 Timothy & Titus, and is written by Andreas J. Kstenberger. Divided into five main sections this commentary becomes a must have for every Pastor who plants and teaching through the Pastoral Epistles. The first of these five sections is that of the introduction. The introduction of this work deals with the traditional introductory matters of a commentary. While being a relatively small commentary Kstenberger dedicates 54 pages to these introductory matters. It is been a long time since I have wholeheartedly agrees with everything and introductory section of a commentary, it was a pleasant surprise. Furthermore Kstenberger make sure to place these Pastoral Epistles in their proper context. This is not only helpful but necessary to understand the authors original intent, the original understanding, and original meaning. Each of these parts shape the context to which a person can expositors from.
In matters relating to the commentary itself commentary on 1st Timothy weighs in at just under 150 pages long while the commentary on 2nd Timothy is around 85 pages followed by the commentary on Titus at around 50 pages. Despite their short length the amount of thoroughness and depth that Kstenberger places on the exposition of the text makes each page in this commentary worth its weight in gold.
Lastly, the greatest part of this commentary is not in the standard commentary section but rather in the last section of the book which deals with Biblical and Theological themes. This section of the book which takes up a third of the book is worth the price of the book itself. Kstenberger explain the themes of each of these three Epistles in great detail giving practical comment on each as well as theological death so that no stone is left upturned. When I next preach on the Pastoral Epistles this commentary will be at the top of my list. I do not know how I have taught through these books of the Bibles without utilizing this super commentary supplicate bye personal exegesis of the text so that Im owed proclaim the gospel in the correct Orthodox light while being able to reach the most people for Christ. I therefore highly recommend this commentary to all pastors who devote themselves to exegetical preaching while seeking to further their understanding through commentaries.
This book was provided to me free of charge from B&H Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Home RunMay 7, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This second release in the Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation (BTCP) series by B & H Publishing is a home run. Andreas Kostenberger has produced a conservative, thoughtful, and winning commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. I anticipated a good volume based on what he has written and edited on the highly-debated passages of these books in the past, and if anything, this volume exceeds my expectations. You have to love a book that holds to biblical inerrancy, has a complementarian viewpoint, and does not run off the rails with esoteric or pointless scholarly misconceptions.
His Introduction covers much of the typical information that you would find in any substantial commentary on the Pastoral Epistles, which he prefers to call LTT, or Pauls letters to Timothy and Titus. Authorship, date, relation between the three letters, and the roles of Timothy and Titus (he sees them as apostolic delegates rather than pastors). He further discusses canonicity, authenticity (which he fully accepts), chronology, and historical context. He has an interesting section on literary analysis and structure as well.
Still, the commentary proper is what I loved. Even better, he always did his best work in the harder passages. Passages on pastoral qualifications, women in ministry, and household code were handled with aplomb. As is an aim of the series, he beautifully draws out theology too. Can you tell Im really high on this commentary? I couldnt imagine not using it in any future study in the Pastoral Epistles.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
