  1. The Word Is Alive 1 Timothy Introduction Narrated by Tony Gillon

  2. Author and Title • This is one of three Pastoral Epistles written by Paul, two to Timothy and one to Titus. Disputes over authorship can be refuted on grounds of historical acceptance and the purpose of the letters

  3. Author and Title • This is one of three Pastoral Epistles written by Paul, two to Timothy and one to Titus. Disputes over authorship can be refuted on grounds of historical acceptance and the purpose of the letters. • There is no tension between how Paul deals with church structure in his general epistles and the Pastoral Epistles to support claims of disputed authorship.

  4. Author and Title • After they had proclaimed the good news to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, then on to Iconium and Antioch. There they strengthened the souls of the disciples and encouraged them to continue in the faith, saying, ‘It is through many persecutions that we must enter the kingdom of God.’ (Continued).

  5. Author and Title • And after they had appointed elders for them in each church, with prayer and fasting they entrusted them to the Lord in whom they had come to believe (Acts 14:21–23).

  6. Author and Title • And after they had appointed elders for them in each church, with prayer and fasting they entrusted them to the Lord in whom they had come to believe (Acts 14:21–23). • Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons. (Philippians 1:1).

  7. Author and Title • Pseudonymous writing was not accepted by the early church and was dealt with severely. Paul always authenticated his own letters.

  8. Author and Title • As to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we beg you, brothers and sisters, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as though from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord is already here (2 Thessalonians 2:1-2).

  9. Author and Title • I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. This is the mark in every letter of mine; it is the way I write. • (2 Thessalonians 3:17).

  10. Author and Title • A church elder had composed the pseudonymous work, The Acts of Paul, which included a purported Pauline letter, 3 Corinthians, the offending elder ‘was removed from his office’. • (Tertullian, On Baptism 17).

  11. Author and Title • To Timothy, my loyal child in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord (1 Timothy 1:2).

  12. Date • Paul was in a Roman prison circa AD60-62.

  13. Date • Paul was in a Roman prison circa AD60-62. • When we came into Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, with the soldier who was guarding him (Acts 28:16).

  14. Date • He lived there for two whole years at his own expense and welcomed all who came to him, proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance (Acts 28:30–31).

  15. Date • It is generally accepted that Paul left his Roman prison probably in AD62 and was martyred at some point between AD65-68. • Thus the letter was written at some point in the mid-60’s.

  16. Theme • The theme of 1 Timothy is that the Gospel leads to practical, visible change in the lives of those who believe and accept it. It is often thought that the theme is church order, but the discussion of church offices is simply a piece of the larger argument that the true Gospel, in contrast to false teaching, will always lead to godliness in its adherents.

  17. Purpose • Paul wrote 1 Timothy in order to advise his younger co-worker Timothy concerning issues that were arising at the church in Ephesus.

  18. Purpose • Paul wrote 1 Timothy in order to advise his younger co-worker Timothy concerning issues that were arising at the church in Ephesus. • I know that after I have gone, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Some even from your own group will come distorting the truth in order to entice the disciples to follow them (Acts 20:29-30).

  19. Purpose • I urge you, as I did when I was on my way to Macedonia, to remain in Ephesus so that you may instruct certain people not to teach any different doctrine (1 Timothy 1:3).

  20. Purpose • Paul hoped to return for a visit but wrote in the meantime to address the way in which Christians should behave: • I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these instructions to you so that, if I am delayed, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of the truth (1 Timothy 3:14–15).

  21. Purpose • The false teachers were the primary reason for Paul writing the letter.

  22. Purpose • The false teachers were the primary reason for Paul writing the letter. • Some people have deviated from these and turned to meaningless talk, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make assertions. (Continued).

  23. Purpose • Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it legitimately. This means understanding that the law is laid down not for the innocent but for the lawless and disobedient, for the godless and sinful, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their father or mother, (Continued).

  24. Purpose • For murderers, fornicators, sodomites, slave-traders, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to the sound teaching that conforms to the glorious gospel of our blessed God, which he entrusted to me.(1 Timothy 1:6–11).

  25. Purpose • Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will renounce the faith by paying attention to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared with a hot iron. They forbid marriage and demand abstinence from foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. (Continued).

  26. Purpose • For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, provided it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by God’s word and by prayer. • (1 Timothy 4:1–5).

  27. Purpose • And not to occupy themselves with myths and endless genealogies that promote speculations rather than the divine training that is known by faith (1 Timothy 1:4).

  28. Purpose • Whoever teaches otherwise and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that is in accordance with godliness, is conceited, understanding nothing, and has a morbid craving for controversy and for disputes about words. (Continued).

  29. Purpose • From these come envy, dissension, slander, base suspicions, and wrangling among those who are depraved in mind and bereft of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain (1 Timothy 6:3-5).

  30. Purpose • Of course, there is great gain in godliness combined with contentment; for we brought nothing into the world, so we can take nothing out of it; but if we have food and clothing, we will be content with these. But those who want to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. (Continued).

  31. Purpose • For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains. • (1 Timothy 6:6–10).

  32. Purpose • Paul addressed the content of the false teaching only in passing but focused on the fact that true Christianity is evidenced by lifestyles shaped by the Gospel. • Those whose lives are not shaped by the Gospel show that they have turned away from the faith.

  33. Purpose • First Timothy is a clear call for the church to live out in tangible ways the ethical implications of the Gospel.

  34. Summary of Salvation History • Christians are to endure suffering for the sake of Christ, looking back on Christ’s sufferings and forward to the consummation of salvation at his Second Coming. • Their treatment of one another in Christ is to be transformed in the light of his grace toward them.

  35. Summary of Salvation History • God’s plan brings the blessings of Christ’s salvation to people partly by means of the church and its ministries.

  36. Writing Style • It general for is that of a NT epistle.

  37. Writing Style • It general for is that of a NT epistle. • It is an occasional letter, dealing with issues specific to the church of the recipient rather than the general thoughts of the writer.

  38. Writing Style • It general for is that of a NT epistle. • It is an occasional letter, dealing with issues specific to the church of the recipient rather than the general thoughts of the writer. • It is a formal command or instruction for Timothy to implement.

  39. Writing Style • The overall style is friendly as written by a father figure to a much loved younger companion an co-worker.

  40. Writing Style • The overall style is friendly as written by a father figure to a much loved younger companion an co-worker. • It provides the most complete summary in the Bible of a pastor’s ministry and spirituality.
