Item description for WBC-Colossians, Ephesians 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus (Westminster Bible Companion) by Lewis Donelson...
Overview New in the Westminster Bible Companion! Aimed at a more introductory level than either "The Old Testament Library" or "Interpretation," this volume explains the Epistles in which early Christians tried to apply Pauline thinking to their own situations.
Paul's influence on Christian thought has been powerful and formative. The deuteropauline epistles, attributed to but not written by Paul, were actually authored by early Christians in an attempt to apply Pauline insights to particular challenges not addressed specifically by Paul. According to Lewis Donelson, this rearticulation and reinterpretation of Pauline wisdom served these early communities by linking them more closely to their apostolic roots. It also provided them with a living gospel that had continuing relevance for their particular time and place.
