Search The Scriptures —Study 1 — 2 Timothy 1

Study 1 From The Book of 2 Timothy Is: 2 Timothy 1

1. Picture Paul’s circumstances. See also 4:9-13.  What positive Christian truths sustained and encouraged Paul as he lay in prison?
2. Note how Paul reminds Timothy of the demands and cost of Christian service. Express in your own words the chief points of Paul’s counsel and exhortation to him.  To which of these do you particularly need to give heed?
3. What do verses 3-7 reveal concerning the value of a God-fearing and Christian home and upbringing? Cf. 3: 14, 15.

Note.  Verse 16-18. ‘Onesiphorus appears here as one separated from his household, either by absence from home, or quite possibly by death (cf. 4:19).  This does not mean, however, that Paul is praying for his present well-being as one dead, a practice completely unsupported elsewhere in Scripture. The prayer concerns not the intermediate state at all, but conduct in this life, and reward on the future day of judgement’?
