Timothy was a young pastor and an important member of the apostle Paul’s missionary team, accompanying him on his second and third missionary journeys. He also was his representative whom Paul sent on his behalf to congregations he had started. Paul’s letters to Timothy show his concern for the future of the church. In these letters, he provides instruction, warns against false teachings, and encourages faithfulness. The letters speak to every believer who is concerned about the future of the church. We will begin our look at these books in January for our Sunday morning Bible class.
