(to honor God)
Young and frail, but godly, Timothy is encouraged and enjoined as to the responsibility of the conduct of every one in God’s house, the maintainer of the truth. Although the house is in order, sound doctrine is stressed because legalizers were at work and in the latter times some would apostatize by giving heed to deceiving spirits. The moral qualifications of overseers and deacons are given without any official character or appointment. See J.N.D. Trans. The testimony of our Savior God concerning the Mediator is for all. The woman’s place, the care of widows, and the love of money are considered. “The King of Kings and Lord of Lords” is here God. See J.N.D. Trans.
Written by Paul, from Macedonia, when free, about A.D. 64.
