Timothy, AND Titus, EPISTLES TO. The epistles to Timothy and that to Titus are called the "Pastoral Epistles" of St. Paul, because they treat of matters connected with the discharge of the pastoral office. They have many features in common, both as regards style and terminology and the general nature 6f their contents. As to the latter, the most noteworthy points are the absence of discussion concerning questions of doctrine which are assumed to be settled, and the importance attached to an organised visible church. It is certain, both from internal and external evidence, that they were composed at very short intervals of time, and cannot belong to an earlier date than the reign of Nero.
