Inductive Studies in 2 Timothy- Small Group Studies with Discussion Questions
2 Timothy is one of the three pastoral epistles written by Paul along with 1 Timothy and Titus. In this letter we can see Paul’s personal relationship with Timothy as he exhorts Timothy to endure in suffering, pursue godliness and be zealous for the gospel no matter what obstacles he may face.
Paul wrote this letter to Timothy from the dark confines of a Roman prison. These bars did not stop him from spreading the gospel and he exhorts Timothy to likewise persevere in spreading the good news of the gospel. There are also instructions to Timothy to beware of and appropriately deal with false teachers as well as examples of seemingly committed disciples who had already gone astray.
In addition, in 2 Timothy 2 we can see Paul’s famous examples of being a farmer, a soldier, and an athlete and his reminder to “flee youthful lusts and pursue godliness, faith, love, and peace. We hope that you will be inspired by studying this book in your own walk with the Lord as well as your zeal for the gospel.
