First Letter to Timothy

“Paul writes to Timothy, who as a young evangelist is facing serious challenges to faith and doctrine within the church at Ephesus.  Paul therefore deals with matters of church organization and conduct, particularly regarding prayer; the role of women; qualifications of elders and deacons; support of widows; and proper attitudes for Christian slaves.  The entire letter reflects the tone of a father writing to his son, as indeed Paul apparently regards this young man, Timothy.”
