New Leaders in the Pastoral Epistles
Lecture no. 22 from the course: Understanding the New Testament
Taught by Professor David Brakke | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Paul’s first and second letters to Timothy and the letter to Titus form a special group of epistles because they were written not to congregations but to church pastors, offering advice for how individual leaders ought to conduct themselves and guide their congregations. Together, they help us explore the development of an independent, organized religion.
