ImmerseMessiah NLT - Page 262


during Nero’s reign. Meanwhile, Timothy was no stranger to persecution, as indicated by an imprisonment mentioned by the author of the
book of Hebrews: “I want you to know that our brother Timothy has
been released from jail.” Timothy had already proved himself ready to
suffer as Paul did, and Paul certainly assumes in this letter that Timothy
would experience further persecution. Paul gives him this charge:
“You must remain faithful to the things you have been
taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust
those who taught you. You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom
to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ
We can be thankful that this letter was added to those “holy Scriptures” and that believers today are encouraged to walk faithfully as they
wait for the return of Christ Jesus.
