Paul was writing to Timothy and Titus to instruct them how to conduct themselves as they worked as evangelists in a local congregation. This study will be beneficial to every Christian in understanding things that are needed in the Christian walk in order to become pleasing to the Lord.
Paul’s personal example is held up over and over again to both Timothy and Titus as an encouragement to continue in the faith and practice of Christianity. Thus Paul would say to a struggling Timothy: “And the things which thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2). And so elders, older men, younger men, both older and younger women along with preachers and teachers are exhorted and admonished to be active in propagating the healthy Christian teaching handed down/taught to us by godly men and women who mentored us in our struggle to live the Christian life. As you read this book, read it with the understanding we have a great heritage in Christ and a big part of that heritage is both the joy and privilege of influencing others in the cause of Christ.
