Second Letter to Timothy

“It appears that Paul may have been rearrested in either Nicopolis or Troas and returned to Rome under a sentence of death.  The tone of Paul’s last known letter indicates that Paul knows his time is short and Paul wants Timothy to come to him as soon as possible.  Paul warns Timothy about the coming of opposition and encourages him to be strong in defense of the faith.  There is a sense of urgency in his exhortations, as if Timothy is Paul’s last link with future generations of those to whom the gospel will be entrusted.”
