Introduction to 1 & 2 Timothy

This study marks the beginning of the 2018 Wednesday night Summer Series on 1 & 2 Timothy.

In this lesson, Mike introduces the books of 1 & 2 Timothy, two books written by the apostle Paul. The books are part of the “pastoral epistles” (along with the book of Titus), so named because they are addressed to two men with pastoral oversight of churches. All three books also discuss doctrinal issues at length.

Most importantly, Paul wants to teach Timothy – and through Timothy, the disciples he will teach – the “way of life” prescribed by Christ.

“What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.”

2 Timothy 1:13 (NIV)
