1 Timothy

Details, Please

The first of three “pastoral epistles,” 1 Timothy contains the aging apostle Paul’s insights for a new generation of church leaders.  Timothy had often worked alongside Paul but was now pastoring in Ephesus (1:3).  Paul warned him against legalism and false teaching (chapter 1), listed the qualifications for pastors and deacons (chapter 3), and described the behavior of a “good minister of Jesus Christ” (4:6) in the final three chapters.
