3 Reasons the Pastoral Letters Matter Today

lexham-bible-guides-pauls-letters-collection (1)Three major theological issues addressed in the Pastoral Letters still affect the church today: women in ministry, church leadership, and the inspiration of Scripture.

When I was in ministry, I hoped people wouldn’t bring up these controversial issues because I never felt ready to explain them “on the spot.” I didn’t intentionally avoid complicated and controversial matters; I just needed time to figure them out on my own first. That time never came—until I sat down to review all the relevant material to write the Lexham Bible Guide: Paul’s Letters Collection on 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus.

I didn’t realize how complex the exegesis of 1 Tim. 2:11–15 was until I’d spent a week writing nearly 4,000 words on the subject. (That’s roughly equivalent to a 15-page paper, double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman—I had to write only a handful of those in college and grad school.) With the Lexham Bible Guide on 1 Timothy now available, what took me a week to write should take you just 30 minutes to read. For comparison, it would take far longer to read Towner’s work on 1 Tim. 2:8–15 (NICNT, pp. 190–239), 50 pages that focus primarily on background issues and the interpretation of 1 Tim. 2:11–12.

Interpreting Paul’s 1 Timothy

In writing this volume of the Lexham Bible Guides, I discovered that nearly every Greek word in those two verses was open to interpretation, including gynē (“woman” or “wife”?), hēsychia (“total silence” or “polite attention”?), and authentein (“to have authority over” . . . but does that mean misusing authority, or just having authority?). Putting aside the discussion about whether Paul authored this letter, the ongoing debate over the possible nuances of meaning revolves around one essential question: Does this passage apply to all believers for all time, or only to specific situations like those Timothy faced at Ephesus? There are no easy answers, and sincere Christian men and women have put forward many thoughtful explanations accounting for various exegetical, social, historical, and theological aspects.

My discussion in this volume of the Lexham Bible Guides addresses the seven major questions that consume the attention of most interpreters. I’ve provided a basic overview of these essential questions and represented the major options for answering them.

Equipping yourself for the tough questions

Instead of dreading a conversation with a church member over this issue, you can feel equipped to explain the text and the primary reasons for debate. The Lexham Bible Guides were designed precisely with this goal in mind—providing you with a time-saving, well-researched introduction to major exegetical and theological issues.

Preparing for regular teaching and preaching can be challenging. You may have the commentaries or access to articles and books, but how much time do you have to wade through them? The Lexham Bible Guides: Paul’s Letters Collection will save you countless hours in sermon and teaching preparation and give you the confidence to address the controversial issues.

Get up to $100 Off the A. T. Robertson Collection!

A.T. Robertson

A. T. Robertson was born on this day in 1863. Through November 13, you can use coupon code ROBERTSON1 to get up to $100 off the A. T. Robertson Collection, and coupon code ROBERTSON2 to get up to $15 off Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research!

What’s in the A. T. Robertson Collection?

You’ll get:

  • Commentaries on Matthew, Luke, Acts, Philippians, and James
  • Works on Greek grammar and textual criticism
  • Numerous lectures and addresses
  • A biography of John Albert Broadus
  • Robertson’s 1916 Stone Lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary
  • His works on the life and ministry of Paul

Check out this excerpt from The Glory of Ministry: Paul’s Exultation in Preaching:

“There is no joy comparable to that of witnessing the conversion of souls under one’s own ministry. This was the joy of Jesus and it is possible for us to have it. A ministry in which souls are not saved misses the chief joy of service. It is small wonder that, in view of the solemn responsibility of such a ministry, Paul asks: ‘And who is sufficient for these things?’ The Greek order is even more emphatic: ‘And for these things who is sufficient?’ He has sketched in the bold contrast of life and death ‘these things.’ The word ‘sufficient’ means ‘fit’ or ‘qualified.’ Many a preacher has felt his utter inadequacy to meet such a situation. He has arrived, but he is not ready for his task. The stoutest heart may well sink before the work of the modern minister.”

Grammar of the Greek New Testament A.T. Robertson

What’s so special about Grammar of the Greek New Testament?

At over 1,500 pages, Robertson’s Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research is one of the most exhaustive descriptions of New Testament Greek ever produced.

No English-language reference grammar since Robertson’s covers NT Greek in such detail. Though you should, of course, stay abreast of the latest advances by supplementing your study with newer grammars, this is a key exegetical tool, and—especially with these limited-time savings—a terrific value.

Learn from 7 Great American Preachers

Right now, you can bid on sermon collections from some of American history’s most notable preachers. Without Logos, integrating these collections into your Bible study would be a challenge—they cover so much! With Logos, though, you can search by topic, jump to Scripture references, and access sermons from any of your devices. Revel in Beecher’s famous biography of Jesus, study the works of Rev. John Witherspoon, and be inspired by R. A. Torrey.

Here are seven collections you should bid on before it’s too late:

henry-ward-beecher-collection

1. Henry Ward Beecher Collection

Regularly $239.95—current bid is only $50

Henry Ward Beecher was, in Spurgeon’s words, “the Shakespeare of the Christian pulpit”; in Lincoln’s, “the most influential man in America.” Famed as his time’s most powerful American public speaker, and noted for his uncompromising moral stances, Beecher achieved social reform, led a dedicated, Christ-serving congregation, and brokered international peace—all from behind the pulpit.

2. The Complete Works of Thomas Smyth

Regularly $149.95—current bid is only $20

Thomas Smyth, born in Ireland, was nevertheless a key character in America’s nineteenth-century formation of Presbyterian doctrine and practice. He rose to prominence in the years preceding the Civil War; his Unity of the Human Race, which defended slaves’ full humanity, earned him the ire of southern slave owners. This 10-volume collection gives you Smyth’s many sermons, lectures, treatises, church guidelines, reviews, discourses, and articles.
the-works-of-the-rev-john-witherspoon

3. The Works of the Rev. John Witherspoon

Regularly $79.95—current bid is only $21

John Knox Witherspoon was a Presbyterian minister, a president of what is now Princeton University, and a signer of the US Declaration of Independence. As a politician, he was a staunch nationalist and republican; as a minister, he was an evangelical opponent of the Moderate Party of the Church of Scotland. This collection includes essays, observations, letters, speeches, and 47 sermons by this great thinker and preacher.

4. Selected Works of R. A. Torrey

Regularly $39.95—current bid is only $8

Reuben Archer Torrey captivated massive crowds with his passionate yet sensible appeals to Scripture, and wrote classics in theology, apologetics, Bible exposition, Christian living, and other fields. Torrey, possessed of almost encyclopedic biblical knowledge, used this knowledge to help readers apply Scripture in practical ways. These four volumes are lesser-known titles—additional pieces of wisdom and insight for studying not only the Bible, but also the practicalities of Christian life and ministry.

Free Book: The Works of Richard Sibbes, vol. 1

the-works-of-richard-sibbes-vol-1All November long, you can get volume 1 of The Works of Richard Sibbes for free!

“The winter prepares the earth for the spring, so do afflictions sanctified prepare the soul for glory.”
—Richard Sibbes

When was the last time you went through trials? How did they affect your relationship with Christ—were you encouraged in your faith, or did you feel abandoned? In The Bruised Reed, Richard Sibbes, the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English theologian, takes on these questions and more. Sibbes uses the metaphor of bruising to describe how God enlightens us: hardships, we learn, come about as a way to drive us to God. Only when our pride is humbled are we able to grasp the sacrifices Christ made for us.

“I shall never cease to be grateful to Richard Sibbes, who was balm to my soul at a period in my life when I was overworked and badly overtired, and therefore subject in an unusual manner to the onslaughts of the devil. I found at that time that Richard Sibbes . . . was an unfailing remedy. His books, The Bruised Reed and The Soul’s Conflict, quieted, soothed, comforted, encouraged, and healed me.”
—Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Volume 1 of The Works of Richard Sibbes gives you not only The Bruised Reed, but also a preface by the editor and a detailed biography.
