Second Timothy is the Last Word from the Apostle Paul. Once again imprisoned, Paul is not expecting an earthly release. He knows that he has finished his course, and requests Timothy’s presence one final time before his death. Imprisoned by his enemies, abandoned by his friends, Paul was virtually alone. Paul can rejoice that he has accomplished the work that he was given to do.
“To Timothy” is named for the recipient of the epistle.
The Apostle Paul, writing a fatherly letter to his true child in faith.
