In my opinion, the best aspect of this commentary is its exegetical detail on the Greek text.
Frank Bellizzi
This book is a valuable work for the novice Bible student, the Bible school student, and even the seasoned pastor or professor.
J. Huff
Then, G. W. Knight III proceeds with his detailed, verse-by-verse exegetical commentary of the Pauline Epistles.

Format: Hardcover
This is a treasure in itself. The serious reader will be able to learn a wealth of theological information that is easy to understand, in a readable format. The contents are well researched and well documented. This volume, like all the other NIGT Commentaries, engages the Biblical text at a scholarly level combining NT Greek exegesis and theological interpretation in their proper historical, linguistic, cultural, and textual context. The present volume is a detailed verse-by-verse commentary of the Greek and English text of the Pastoral epistles. It is useful for the scholar doing research, and also for the pastor doing sermon preparation. It is absolutely indispensable for the Bible student who is learning what the Bible really says. What I really like is the exegetical approach of the Greek text. The author also brilliantly engages the scholarly literature on the particular subject being discussed. Yes his approach is from an evangelical perspective (as it should be). Exegesis tries to bring to light the real meaning of the text and not the biased interpretative conventions of different denominations. I respect that. Thus I highly recommend this volume. The price is affordable, even though all books today are a bit too expensive. Nevertheless, it is a good investment and a perfect addition to the pastor's (or layman's) library.

The book opens with a foreword, a preface and bibliography. After the detailed textual and historical introduction it addresses the attestation of the early church and its relationship with the Acts of the Apostles and the other NT epistles. Afterwards, the author continues with a meticulous presentation of critical arguments concerning the authorship of these epistles.

This is probably the most helpful commentary that I have on the Pastoral Epistles. George Knight does an excellent job with the Pastoral Epistles explaining not only the meaning of the words, but the relationships between the words and ideas of the text. He deals with difficult passages fairly and draws from and footnotes many other helpful resources. While knowledge of Greek will enable one to get full benefit from this commentary, Knight explains concepts in enough detail for those who do not know Greek to benefit greatly as well.

A volume every pastor should have on his shelf. Knight takes his cue from the Greek text and works through the major issues in each letter. A student of Pauline theology will often see this volume cited in footnotes and endnotes by other writers and scholars because of its importance and completeness. The text is explained in a way that will satisfy those who don't know Greek, but that will also delve deeper for those who are conversant with the original language. Highly recommended and worth the price.

This commentary doesn't pretend to know things that are guesses. He puts all the information infront of you and allows you to sort through it. If you are looking for a commentary that treats the grammatical issues of the text this is it. If you are looking for what someone got out of their devotions this isn't it.
