People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 6:13


1Ti 6:13 I give thee charge in the sight of God . . . and [before] Christ Jesus. See 1Ti 1:5,18. The whole epistle is a charge, and here at the close Paul renews the charge very solemnly. Who before Pontius Pilate testified a good confession. The Greek may be rendered "under Pontius Pilate". Jesus before the Sanhedrin confessed that he was the Christ, the Son of God (Mt 26:63,64), and on that confession they condemned him to death and hurried him to Pilate for execution (Mt 27:1,2). Ibelieved this is what Paul refers to. Though before Pilate our Lord reaffirmed in substance this same confession (Joh 18:33-37).
