“Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.”
King James Version (KJV)
1Ti 2:7 Whereunto. To testify of this ransom. I am ordained a preacher. Appointed "a herald" (Revised Version, margin). And an apostle. An apostle also, with the authority of an apostle. I speak the truth in Christ, [and] lie not. The Judaizers denied his apostleship. Hence this special affirmation.
