The three books of New Testament Timothy 1, Timothy-2 and Titus are also called the Pastoral Epistles as they are written to young men entrusted with the role of leading or pastoring a church. As these letters are written to individuals, they are thus more personal and direct than Paul’s other letters as they are penned for some of his closest companions. This letter was written to legitimate young Timothy’s leadership and to direct the young church. Paul was in jail in Rome when he wrote this letter, facing an impending execution and this was Paul’s last known letter, written just before his death in 67 AD. Timothy is mentioned almost 24 times in the New Testament. He was from Lystra. His mother was a Jewish believer and his father, a Greek. Timothy was taught the Old Testament from his childhood by his mother and grandmother. However, it was Paul who delivered him the gospel of Jesus because Paul often refers to Timothy as “my son in the faith.” Paul encourages Timothy and reminds him of the work at hand. He reveals his fears to Timothy of the dangers within the church and advises on the ethical behavior of all individuals. Timothy addresses such subjects inspirations of Scripture and the expectation of a future reward, warning against false prophets and Paul’s predestination thoughts by writing that God saved us and called us because of His own purpose before the beginning of time. The second letter to Timothy serves as the Apostle’s last will and testament of the Apostle. Paul is entrusting in this letter the things that are precious to him, namely the gospel of Jesus Christ.
