The Pastoral Epistles A Commentary on the Greek Text Stanley E. Porter

New Testament scholar Stanley Porter offers a comprehensive commentary on the Pastoral Epistles that features rigorous biblical scholarship and emphasizes Greek language and linguistics. This book breaks new ground in its interpretation of these contro- versial letters by focusing on the Greek text and utilizing a linguisti- cally informed exegetical method that draws on various elements in contemporary language study. Porter pays attention to the overall argument of the Pastoral Epistles while also analyzing word mean- ings and grammatical structures to tease out the textual meaning. Porter addresses major exegetical issues that arise in numerous highly disputed passages and—while attentive to the history of scholarship on First Timothy, Second Timothy, and Titus—often takes untraditional or innovative positions to blaze a new path forward rather than adopt settled answers. This commentary will appeal to professors, students, and scholars of the New Testament. PRAISE FOR STANLEY PORTER “Porter is not only a fine scholar but also an excellent teacher and communicator.” —CRAIG A. EVANS, Houston Baptist University “Porter has produced numerous excellent books on New Testament Greek and has shown himself to be a master of Greek grammar, syntax, idiom, and text. Porter is always judicious, informative, and creative.” —ANTHONY C. THISELTON, University of Nottingham (emeritus) “No one in recent decades has matched Stanley Porter in the breadth of his interests in linguistic analysis of the Greek New Testament. He is the most prolific scholar currently working in these fields.” —D. A. CARSON, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (emeritus) “Porter is one of the most prolific scholars working on the manuscripts, language, linguistics, and translation of the New Testament writings.” —CHARLES E. HILL, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando
