The Book of 1 Timothy
Brief Summary. Paul warns the leaders at the
church in Ephesus of the many dangers that they were facing (Acts 20:17-31).
Problems had obviously happened at the church, there were teachers who were not
following sound doctrine (1 Timothy 6:3). Paul wrote this letter to advise
Timothy who was very young, on how to deal with these issues, and also
encouraged him in his duties as a minister.

1 Timothy. "HITHERTO Paul's epistles were directed to churches; now
follow some to particular persons: two to Timothy, one to Titus, and another to
Philemon--all three ministers. Timothy and Titus were evangelists, an inferior
order to the apostles, as appears by Ephesians 4:11, Some prophets, some
apostles, some evangelists. Their commission and work was much the same with
that of the apostles, to plant churches, and water the churches that were
planted; and accordingly they were itinerants, as we find Timothy was. Timothy
was first converted by Paul, and therefore he calls him his own son in the
faith: we read of his conversion, Acts 16:3. The scope of these two epistles is
to direct Timothy how to discharge his duty as an evangelist at Ephesus, where
he now was, and where Paul ordered him for some time to reside, to perfect the
good work which he had begun there. As for the ordinary pastoral charge of that
church, he had very solemnly committed it to the presbytery, as appears from
Acts 20:28, where he charges the presbyters to feed the flock of God, which he
had purchased with his own blood." - Matthew Henry (Read
