Editorial Reviews

Review

"Does traditional material contribute to the message and understanding of 1 Timothy, asks Yarbrough, and seeks an answer within the assumption that such material was formulated before an epistle was written, and expressed the Christian community's conviction, or tradition. He surveys criteria used to evaluate traditional material and identifies eight of them as primary. Then he applies them to 19 passages that potentially preceded Paul's use of them, and demonstrates four functions of identified preformed traditions in the epistle."
-Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.


"Based on a doctoral dissertation presented to Dallas Theological Seminary in 2008, this volume contends that performed traditions (that is, material that was formulated prior to an epistle's writing and was expressive of the Christian community's conviction) strengthen 1 Timothy's literary cohesion and provide rhetorical leverage in stating theological directives that combat counter-mission doctrine. After a sixteen-page introduction, it considers taxonomy and identification criteria for performed traditions. Next it identifies performed traditions in 1 Tim 1:8-10; 1-15a-b; 1:17; 2:5-6a; 3:1; 3:16; 4:8; 4:9, 10b; 5:24-25; 6:7, 6:10a; and 6:11-16. Then it demonstrates four functions of identified preformed traditions in 1 Timothy: strengthening literary cohesion, providing rhetorical leverage, presenting theological directives against opponents, and combating counter-mission doctrine. Four appendixes are included."

'The earlier part of the work examines the significance of preformed material and offers critieria by which it can be assessed. The major study takes short passages that have been considered to contain such material.' - Donald A Bullen, Liverpool Hope University
