Audio for Timothy Study

Timothy Study - Part 1

Timothy Study - Part 1. The lesson on November 26, 2006 starts a new series by taking a look at the books of Timothy in the New Testament that the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy. Paul wrote these after he declared in Ephesians that he was given the calling to make all saints see what is the fellowship of The Mystery. Paul then took his brother in Christ, Timothy and gave us an example of how to do this type of ministry. Timothy is a character in scripture that faced issues just like other Christians do today. He really understood some things, yet he struggled with others that brought him...

Timothy Study - Part 2

Timothy Study - Part 2. The lesson on December 3, 2006 continues the series on Timothy with part two in the series. We find the Apostle Paul appealing to Timothy regarding proper doctrine. Doctrine develops the walk of a Christian. What was the doctrine that was followed in Ephesus? We learn from Acts that Paul was there for three years warning about the Pagan doctrine they were following worshipping Diana (Acts 19:1 “And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples.” Acts 20:31 ”...

Timothy Study - Part 3

Timothy Study - Part 3. The lesson on January 21, 2007 picked up the audio series on Timothy with lesson three in the series. The study covers 1 Timothy 1:1-11. The first lesson covered the people we are dealing with in Ephesus. Timothy and Paul. Paul is a preacher, apostle, and an teacher to the Gentiles. This wasn’t so in the Acts period when Paul met Timothy (this is when Timothy became one of Paul’s converts as explained in Acts 16:1-5) Timothy was a devout believer from being raised by his mother Lois, and grandmother Eunice which were Jews that believed in Christ. Timothy’s...

Timothy Study - Part 4

Timothy Study - Part 4. The lesson on February 4, 2007 continues the series on Timothy with part 4 which takes us to the end of chapter one. Timothy is a pastoral letter written by the Apostle Paul to Timothy which was the church leader in Ephesus so there is a good connection with the Ephesians letter and 1 Timothy. Beginning in verse 12, Paul specifies he has been enabled by the love of Christ. It always begins with Christ. We see that Paul was accounted faithful to be responsible for the calling that Christ gave him which was “to be a pattern to them which should hereafter believe...

Timothy Study - Part 5

Timothy Study - Part 5. The lesson on February 11, 2007 continues in the Timothy study in chapter 2. This chapter primarily covers two topics: Prayer and Women in the church. There has been some controversy in the fact that Paul said in verse 1, “I Exhort”. Some have said that this isn’t the Word of God but instead Paul’s opinion. We believe that it is God’s Word and that not only will this chapter cover prayer and women in the church but, it’s really a question of God’s will vs. my will . Meaning, will you listen to what God says or will you follow your own will? Paul addresses...

Timothy Study - Part 6

Timothy Study - Part 6. The lesson on February 18th, 2007 covers another important aspect of management in the church with the appointment of Bishops. Chapter one covered sound doctrine. Chapter two covered prayer and the role of women in the church. Chapter three covers the role of being a bishop in the church. Paul thought it important to cover the qualifications of the bishop. Paul writes this pastoral epistle to help Timothy straighten out the problems he is facing the the church in Ephesus. The problems Timothy was facing is the same problems the church is facing today. The...

Timothy Study - Part 7

Timothy Study - Part 7. Continuing in the Timothy series, the lesson on February 25, 2007 covers 1 Timothy 3:8-16 which details the qualifications for the leaders in the church. Timothy is the head of the church in Ephesus which is where Paul encountered a lot of problems. If we look at Acts 20:17 we see that Paul had to call the elders to a meeting outside the city because such a ruckus was caused by individuals like Alexander the coppersmith (1 Tim. 1:20; 2 Tim. 4:14). Paul told them to watch over the church and to look out for those that would cause problems from outside trying to...

Timothy Study - Part 8

Timothy Study - Part 8. Continuing in 1 Timothy, this lesson starts in chapter 4 which was given on March 4, 2007. Paul reminds Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:6 ”If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.”. The encouragement is to practice Godliness which we do by putting on the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5). God’s spirit communicates with our spirit as we learn in 1 Corinthians 2:10 “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the...

Timothy Study - Part 9

Timothy Study - Part 9. The lesson on April 22, 2007 is the continuation of the series on the books written by Paul to Timothy who is the leader of the church at Ephesus. Timothy was a young man in a hostile territory leading a church in a city which was steep in idolatry and he had much opposition to Christ. God has given Timothy all he needs to know through the Apostle Paul. Even more with us today. God has completed the word of God and we have all we need in scripture to complete our walk which we have been called to do. When Paul told Timothy in 1 Tim 4:8-9 (KJV) “For bodily...

Timothy Study - Part 10

Timothy Study - Part 10. The lesson on April 29, 2007 is the tenth lesson on the audio series called the “Timothy Study”. The scripture for this lesson is chapter 5 of 1 Timothy verses 1 thru 16. Paul writes Timothy in chapter 5 about practical lessons on administration in the church, particularly in regards with widows. The chapter starts out with wisdom expressed in the means of handling elders. Timothy is told not to rebuke an elder but treat them like family members as if they were brothers. There is often a comparison of family members with other Christians in the body of Christ...
