I've always loved First and Second Timothy. Paul's warmth encourages me, his exhortations to his protégé Timothy challenge me, his example of sacrificing all for the gospel humbles me. These two epistles include:
My mind keeps returning to Paul's last words:
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness ...." (2 Timothy 4:7-8)
You and I want to live our lives strongly and finish well! These letters teach us how and urge us towards godly living. Here is the outline of our 11-week study:
Appendix 1. Discussion Questions on 1 and 2 Timothy for Classes and Small Groups
Appendix 2. Chart of Qualifications of Church Leaders (1 Timothy 3:2-12; Titus 1:6-9)
Artwork Depicting St. Paul the Apostle
Paintings and Icons of St. Timothy
Songs and Hymns based on 1 and 2 Timothy
I invite you to journey with me and thousands of brothers and sisters world-wide through a study of 1 and 2 Timothy. Here's how we'll study together.
- Each Saturday I'll e-mail you the lesson for the week . Then you'll read the Bible passage and use my notes to help you understand it better.
Available in Kindle and PDF e-book formats
from that week's lesson to think about and answer. This is designed as a
"total immersion" approach to Bible study, since I believe God wants to use
these lessons to work real and permanent change in your life. (You can opt
out of the daily questions if you like, however, and just receive the weekly
lessons.) You'll be thinking about these passages constantly over these
weeks -- long enough for God to work his Word into your life and lifestyle.
- You can respond to the questions and exercises using the Joyful Heart Bible Study Forum -- and read others' answers to reinforce your own understanding.
- With each lesson you'll receive a link to a 20- to 30-minute audio teaching that sums up the passage you've been studying that week. Some who learn better from hearing than from reading really appreciate this.
- Then on Saturday, I'll send you the next week's lesson.
Why don't you sign up right now -- and then encourage some of your friends to sign up and study along with you.
|One big favor you can do for me: Please link to this Bible study in your online bookmarks, blog, personal webpage, ministry or church website, as follows: 1 & 2 Timothy Bible Study www.jesuswalk.com/timothy/ The number of people who will find this on the Internet is directly related to the number of links you and other place.

You'll receive your first lesson the Friday after you sign up. There is no cost to participate in the study, though donations are encouraged so we can create more studies and reach more people.
We respect your privacy and never sell, rent, or loan our lists. Please don't subscribe your friends; let them decide for themselves.
Please don't sign up for more than one of my Bible studies at one time. There's no penalty, but each of them is pretty intensive. If you try to do too many studies at the same time without adequate reflection, you'll miss out on God speaking to you.
