Pastoral Epistles

I am currently reading Samuel Ngewa's commentary on the Pastoral Epistles (published 2009). This is the inaugural volume of a series that hopes to provide expositional commentaries for each book of the Bible. This (and the other forthcoming volumes) evolved from an earlier initiative of "70 authors" to produce the single-volume Africa Bible Commentary. The ABC was published in 2006.

Dr. Negwa is Professor of NT Studies at Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST). God willing, I will be teaching a seminar on the Pastoral Epistles this summer at the neighboring Kenya Baptist Theological College (KBTC). I hope to meet Dr. Negwa in Nairobi this summer to discuss Paul's ecclesiology, especially the list of qualifications for elders in 1 Tim. 3 and Titus 1. This will serve as research for my forthcoming (God willing!) monograph entitled A Noble Task: Exploring the Biblical Qualifications for Elders.

I will also be offering a course on the Pastoral Epistles at Christ Church in Brenham on Monday evenings from 6PM-9PM starting January 4, 2010. All are welcome.
