2 Timothy 1 – Bible Study and Application

Vs. 1 Intro – Very brief. Humility…? Last of Paul’s letters. Shorter and shorter.

Vs. 4 – Acts 16:1-5 – Timothy’s mother was a Jewess and a believer. His father however was a Greek. Timothy was circumcised in Acts 16:3 to make the traveling easier. The faith is passed on in families. Sincere faith! The believers spoke well of Timothy 16:2, so that Paul wanted to take him along.

Vs. 6 – Timothy received a spiritual gift through prayer… 1 Timothy 4:14 – he received a gift through a prophetic message when the elders laid hands on him. I’d suspect this occurred before he went on the mission trip. 1 Timothy 1:18 refers to these prophetic messages too and encourages Timothy to stick to the path laid before him.

Vs. 7 – Spirit of power of love and of self-discipline. 1 Cor. 16:10 – See to it that Timothy has nothing to fear when he comes to you. Timothy shouldn’t be timid, but knowing that he is, the brothers and sisters need to not add to his timidity. Support each other in our weaknesses. 1 Tim 4:12 – Don’t let anyone look down on you since you are young.

Vs. 8 – Don’t be ashamed to testify about the Lord.

Vs. 9-10 – The grace of Christ has been given to us before the beginning of time, but now it has been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought immortality and light through the gospel. It’s always been his plan to save. Now it has been revealed. How do you know God is love – through Jesus!

Vs. 13 Keep the pattern of sound teaching with faith and love in Christ. Faith and love should accompany sound teaching.

  1. Wow, wonderful blog layout! How long have you
    been blogging for? you make blogging look easy.
    The overall look of your website is magnificent, let alone the content!

    • Your email address intrigued me. It seemed Lutheran. Lo and behold it is! I’m a Lutheran high school teacher too. I started to blog when I started teaching theology in 2009. The first blog had a different url, and it died out. I started this blog to help promote my book, Contradict – They Can’t All Be True. Since I have a plan to write other books, I named the blog url after myself. I noticed that other Christian authors did that and then they would have website for their specific books, so I followed suit. As you can see I haven’t posted in a very long time. My posting has become very sporadic. Teaching can be time consuming as you know. I had to pilot a new online course last year, so it cut into some of my blogging time. I hope to pick back up this summer… eventually.

      Send emails or questions to andy@contradictmovement.org, and please share my book with the theology teachers at your school. If they have a world religions or apologetics class, I think it’s perfect for a high school class, or if they have an evangelism club, or need a good resource book on their shelf, etc.
