These study guides, part of a 16-volume set from noted Bible Scholar John MacArthur, take readers on a journey through biblical texts to discover what lies beneath the surface, focusing on meaning and context, and then reflection on the explored passage or concept.
Timothy was a young pastor who was facing problems within the church in Ephesus. In these personal letters to his protegee, the apostle Paul gives practical pastoral instruction, highlighting godliness and holy living, to help Timothy fulfill his calling and effectively carry out his important tasks in the church. Paul’s gentle encouragement challenges Timothy to persevere in his faith- a faith that might have been weakening under the pressure of the church and the persecution of the world. Paul’s godly counsel was helpful not only to Timothy, a first-century Christian leader, but also to believers today.
