Explore the content and major themes of 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus with New Testament Professor Kenneth Waters Sr. You’ll examine the doctrine of salvation, learn the difference between “imminent” and “immanent” eschatology, gain background information on Timothy and Titus, and see the bigger picture of where and how these letters fit in with the rest of Paul’s journeys and our own spiritual formation.
Dr. Waters also looks at the controversies that surround the interpretation of these texts. You’ll gain new insight into Paul’s remarks about slavery and the roles of women in the church.
