  6. 6. Brief history of the community[Ephesus]Historical: In 133 B.C. Ephesus was conquered byRome, and plunged into a century of civil war.However, Ephesus grew and prospered to apopulation of nearly half a million in the first centuryA.D., and is located on a major Roman trade route(Unger, 366).Spiritual: For three years, Paul remained inEphesus, teaching in homes and workingmiracles and healing. One of the largest massof conversions came when seven menattempted to drive out evil spirits in the name ofJesus and Paul, but the demons attacked theminstead (Acts 19:16). A man named Demetriuswas Paul‟s greatest adversary inEphesus, speaking out against him, and stirringup a riot, after which, Paul left (Halley, 747).4
  7. 7. For whom the letter was writtenObviously the letter was a personal letterwritten for Timothy, encouraging him tocontinue faithfully in his duties to: Stand fast on his beliefs and hold on tosound doctrine, Avoid false teachings, Accept persecution for the gospel and Put all your confidence in the scriptureand preach it relentlessly to the nextgeneration.5
  8. 8. When and where it was writtenThe letter is believed by many historiansand scholars that it was written aroundthe time of Nero.Nero had Paul executed and it is believedthat Nero himself died around 68AD, therefore Paul‟s death was shortlybefore, which means that the secondletter to Timothy would be writtenaround 66-67 AD.The letter was written in one of the prisoncell in Rome under terrible conditions.6
  9. 9. The purpose in his writing [Whydid Paul wrote this letter?]Consequently, Paul wishes to write to Timothybefore he dies. He is suffering in chains, in acold dungeon (cf. 1:16; 2:9; 4:13). Hispurpose in writing is really twofold:1. He is lonely and he wants Timothy to cometo Rome (1:4; 4:9, 21), since only Luke iswith him (4:11) and no one else couldminister to his needs as well as couldTimothy (cf. Phil 2:20);2. Since he is about to die, he must encourageTimothy to continue in the work of theministry. 7
  10. 10. What is the highlight/significanceof Paul’s letter? Suffering is a standard part of Christianexperience. The Christian response to suffering is faithfulperseverance by God‟s power. The gospel is the ground for Christian‟sendurance. The Scriptures have power to serve andpreserve. True believers will persevere; failure topersevere proves one is not converted. False teaching is deadly and must be dealtwith firmly.8
  11. 11. Relationship Paul had a great relationship with Timothysince he met him at Lystra (Acts 16: 1-3). Timothy joined Paul in his labors and sharedin them throughout the rest of his life. He was with Paul in prison in Rome during hisfirst imprisonment (Col 1:1). After Paul‟s release, they both traveled toEphesus and was left there to minister to theneeds of the church. At the end of Paul‟s life, he joined him againin Rome (2 Tim 4: 11-21). Paul regarded Timothy as his „true son‟ in thefaith (2 Tim 1: 2)9
  12. 12. ProblemsPaul anticipated dark days ahead for thechurch. He listed several characteristics ofthis time, clarified the most important conductin it, and explained his own role to prepareTimothy and all his readers for what layahead.A. Characteristics of the last days (3:1-13)1.

  13. 13. 2. Negative and positive illustrations (3:8-13) These are the measures against falseteachers that Paul had warn Timothy to beaware of. Timothy was to follow Pauls ministry(teaching, conduct, and purpose) and his life(faith, patience, love, and perseverance) to bea witness of Christ to others. The fact that God had delivered Paul from allhis persecutions would have encouragedTimothy to continue following the apostlesexample.11
  14. 14. ExhortationA. Exhortation to Endurance (2:1-13)1. Teach others (2:1-2)2. Endure Hardship (2:3-7)3. Remember Jesus Christ (2:8-13)B. Exhortation to Faithfulness (2:14-26)1.
