This very point has been argued recently by two who hold to pseudepigraphy: Hanson, pp. 14-23 (on the mission to Crete, see esp. pp. 22-23), and J. D. Quinn, "Paul's Last Captivity:' 10. One of the curiosities of some who advocate pseudepigraphy is their willingness to argue that since the author probably wrote all three letters at the same time, it is "difficult to see any particular reason why one letter should be put either before or after another" (Hanson, p.

Indeed, it is in 2 Timothy, the letter in which Paul expresses the awareness of his impending death (4:6-7), that he also expresses himself in a most thoroughly eschatological way.
