(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- Dr. Reggie Kidd, professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary’s Orlando campus, has contributed the editorial commentary for the Pastoral Epistles (I and II Timothy and Titus) in The Baker Illustrated Bible Commentary released March 1 by BakerBooks. This 1636 page book is beautifully illustrated and easily understandable.
The commentary is a complete revision of the well-known Baker Commentary of the Bible and edited by Gary M. Burge and Andrew E. Hill.
Kidd earned a Ph.D. in Christian Origins from Duke University and has taught the Greek language and New Testament classes at RTS Orlando since 1990. The editors of the new Baker commentary say, “All the writers for this commentary are technical scholars in their field. They all have a knowledge of the original language of the text and have studied it extensively; many have already written elsewhere on the same material that they address in this volume.”
Kidd's principal concentration in New Testament teaching is the Pauline epistles. He has published on the Pastoral Epistles in monograph, article, and review form; has contributed to the Disputed Paulines Group for the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL); has presented papers on the Pastoral Epistles at SBL and the Evangelical Theological Society; and is developing a series of videos on Paul’s teaching through Third Millennium Ministries.
The RTS Orlando campus, a graduate theological school, was established in 1989 in Maitland and moved to its permanent location on 65 acres on Long Lake in Oviedo, Fla., in 1999. It is one of several campuses in the RTS system, which was founded in 1966. RTS is one of the largest seminaries in the country with campuses in Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston, Jackson, Memphis, Orlando and Washington D.C., in addition to a virtual campus offering online classes.
