Though its title stems from Psalms 23, the book contains
expositions, diagrams, and grammatical notes of Titus and 1 &
2 Timothy. These pastoral letters are a part of Paulís contribution
to the New Testament, but they differ in vocabulary, style and content
from his letters to churches. They deal with problems of leadership,
and are written with knowledge that Paul would soon relinquish his
lifeís work to younger men. They were written to assure an orderly
transition to the next generation.
It is important that the reader studying this volume read the
preface with care. The addenda, with which the book
closes, should also be examined diligently.
