Is becoming a Christian only meant to determine our afterlife? Or does it have value for this life too? How do we embrace the new life God has promised to those who trust in Him? This is the focus of the last of Paul’s letters found in Scripture: 2 Timothy.
In this verse-by-verse study, we’ll join Paul in jail as he writes his most autobiographic letter to the young pastor Timothy. From a missionary near the end of his life, to a young man at the beginning of his ministry, Paul’s words offer both encouragement and warning for those just stepping out in their new life of faith. But through it all, we’ll be reminded that God’s grace covers us from beginning to end.
In this study of 2 Timothy, we'll cover in detail all 6 chapters of Paul’s letter.
