Qualified Overseers. The apostle Paul left the young preacher Titus on the island of Crete so that he could “set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city” (Titus 1:5). In the early church older men known as elders (also called bishops, overseers, and shepherds) were given the task of overseeing a local congregation and insuring that the flock was fed and the wolves kept away.
Qualified Overseers, a new book by David Padfield, is an exegetical study of the qualifications of an elder. This book contains four sermons on these qualifications and explores in great detail the meaning of each of the attributes set forth in Scripture. Instead of just quoting from Greek lexicons to find the meaning of the words found in the Greek text, this study focuses more on how the words have been rendered in over twenty English translations of the Bible (30 pages; PDF file size: 687k).
