First Epistle of Paul to Timothy

Chapter 1
Paul introduces himself as an apostle of Jesus Christ. Paul greets Timothy as his son in the faith. Paul had left Timothy in Ephesus.
Paul teaches
[5] Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
Paul declares that he was a blasphemer, persecutor, and sinner, but he obtained mercy from Jesus Christ.
Chapter 2

Paul teaches that we should pray for all me.
He also testifies of Jesus Christ.
[5] For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
[6] Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
Paul then gives instruction to women. He writes that they should continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
 Chapter 3
Paul sets forth the qualifications for bishops and deacons.
Paul also testifies of Jesus Christ:
[16] And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Chapter 4
Paul warns against hypocrisy, seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. He teaches that we must trust in the living God who is the Saviour of all men, especially of those that believe.
Chapter 5
Paul discusses matters concerning widows and elders.
Paul also teaches
[8] But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
Chapter 6
Paul preaches
[10] For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
[11] But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

Second Epistle of Paul to Timothy

Chapter 1
Paul introduces himself as an apostle and greets Timothy.
Timothy's mother is Eunice. HIs grandmother is Lois. Lois and Eunice were Jews. They both became Christians.
Timothy's father, however, was a Greek. Cross-reference Acts 16:1-3.
Paul mentions that he is a prisoner. He was a prisoner in Rome when he wrote this epistle.
Paul proclaims
[7] For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
He also teaches that Jesus Christ "hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."
Chapter 2
Paul gives advice to Timothy. He teaches
[22] Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
[23] But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
[24] And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient.
Chapter 3
Paul Describes Apostasy in the Last Days:
[1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
[2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
[3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
[4] Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
[5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

[7] Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Cross reference with Isaiah 5:20.
Paul mentions that Jannes and Jambres were corrupt men who withstood Moses. They may have been Egyptian magicians in the court of Pharoah, although their names do not appear in the Old Testament.
Chapter 4
Paul continues to write about apostasy.
[3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
[4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
