A-Z: Books of the Bible: 2 Timothy


NT epistle (letter) / the pastoral epistles


1 and 2 Timothy: These letters plus Titus are generally called the Pastoral Epistles because they are largely taken up with pastoral issues in the church such as the place of women and the behaviour required of bishops (overseers) and deacons. The feel of these letters is of a settled community of the second generation of Christians and Pauline authorship is considered unlikely by many.
