The Book Of 2 Timothy

WELCOME TO THE STUDY OF THE BOOK OF 2 TIMOTHY

Paul’s second letter to Timothy is a personal letter to Timothy, which begins by Paul reflecting on Timothy’s sincere faith. Timothy’s mother, Eunice, and his grandmother, Lois, had taught Timothy from a very young age about what faith is all about. Paul sees evidence of this faith in Timothy and is overjoyed that he is displaying in his life what he was taught.

Paul wanted to encourage Timothy as much as he can, to fine-tune his work in Ephesus where he was to stay as an evangelist. Paul is obviously waiting for the result of his trial in 2 Timothy and makes some requests to Timothy to come and see him before he was put to death. Complete Study Of The Book Of 2 Timothy


CHAPTER BY CHAPTER

Paul writes this second letter to Timothy to encourage him to be strong in grace, and to continue to be unwavering in what he had been taught, especially in light about the upcoming days of apostasy and godlessness. Paul charges Timothy to continue to hold on to ‘the faith’ and to be bold and prepared in all circumstances to preach God’s Word. 2 Timothy 1

Paul begins this chapter by reminding Timothy to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus because as a Christians he will face much suffering. Timothy, as an evangelist, must practice what he studies and teaches others and he must deal with false teachers gently. 2 Timothy 2

Paul begins this chapter by reminding Timothy of the great apostasy which was to be expected in the church, and states some of the characteristics of it.

Sadly, many have taken Paul’s description of the ‘last days’ to mean the events which will happen just before Christ returns. 2 Timothy 3

In this final chapter, Paul charges Timothy to continue to do his work as an evangelist in reaching the lost and to continue to do what God called him to do. Paul recognises his life on Earth is coming to an end and desperately wants Timothy to come and visit him before he dies. 2 Timothy 4
