An Exegesis of 2 Timothy 1
Timothy was a new pastor. He led a congregation during a time when Christians would be hated and persecuted. How was he supposed to handle such a situation? Thankfully, God had given Timothy a great spiritual mentor in Paul. Paul loved him as his own child, understood that times for Timothy would be difficult, and offered him the encouragement of the power of the gospel. In this exegetical study of 2 Timothy 1, Cross offers both his own translation and commentary of the Greek text — words that are fitting for all pastors who undergo such troubles in their own ministries.
