While these letters bear the name of St. Paul, they were actually written by Paul’s followers in homage to the great apostle. The authors of these epistles sought to rework Paul’s message for a new era, bringing his words alive for the early Christian communities. Composed near the end of the first century, these letters captured the hopes and struggles of believers in the Greco-Roman world. The message of the Pastoral Epistles echoes throughout the millennia, providing listeners with powerful models of the Christian life in the 21st century. Explore these letters today.
