Pastors and leaders of the classical church – such as Augustine, Calvin, Luther, and Wesley – interpreted the Bible theologically, believing Scripture as a whole witnessed to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Modern interpreters of the Bible questioned this premise.  But in recent decades, a critical mass of theologians and biblical scholars has begun to reassert the priority of a theological reading of Scripture.  The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret Scripture for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places.  This addition to the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible offers a new interpretation of the theology and the narrative context of 1st and 2nd Timothy, Titus, Philemon, and Jude.  Risto Saarinen makes three unique claims:
  1. the Pastoral Epistles need to be understood in terms of character formation and diagnostic language,
  2. the treatment of gifts and giving is a prominent feature of the epistles, and
  3. a theological exegesis of these books results in a new view regarding the nature of doctrine.

This commentary, like each in the series, is designed to serve the church – through aid in preaching, teaching, study groups, and so forth – and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
