Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 4:20


4:20 When I came on, Erastus abode at Corinth - Being chamberlain of the city, #Rom 16:23|. But Trophimus I have left sick - Not having power (as neither had any of the apostles) to work miracles when he pleased, but only when God pleased.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 4:20


2Ti 4:20 Erastus abode at Corinth. Probably his old home (Ro 16:23). Trophimus. He was an Ephesian (Ac 20:4 21:29). Have I left at Miletum sick. These personal details were better understood by Timothy than by us, but I suppose this statement is made to explain why Trophimus was not in Rome. This verse proves that this letter does not belong to the date of Paul's first imprisonment, since years have passed between Paul's last visit to Miletus and the first Roman imprisonment.

    To live this life is to suffer your whole life as l did, not realizing that because you had a calling in your life when born. You were chosen to do special things for the Lord. But growing up did not know God fully, but instead the world ways. Evilness lerked near me causing many a fall and being alone. But God and l fought the trial off. Not knowing-- l climbed out of the pits stronger then ever. Now in the ending of my life l go out fighting for others. With the Light surrounding me, no one will touch me unless the Lord lets them. My strength comes from the Lord each day. Even though the evilness of this world trys and destroy me. I wake up another day living moment to moment walking in His Son Jesus shoes. No turning back now. I chose this fight to the end. Choose this day who you will serve. Fight to the end!!!!
  • Apostle Ebony Carter
    I read this with confirmation to what Timothy was writing here. We see and are experiencing the identical attitude in this present time 2019. Know we are God witnesses and will experience the same thing our brethren did in Jesus Christ time. May we continue to fight the good fight of faith , love the brethren and close any demonic doors to satan. He s rejected knowing his weakness. Moving forw

    Verse 5 We want to share the good news and make sure that we fully accomplish our ministry. The best way to do this is by imitating Jesus Christ and the way that he carried out his ministry.
  • Samuel
    "I Have Fought The Good Battle Of Faith And I Have Finished The Race." Paul Was Not Saying As We Might Think- I Can See The Cry With Bitterness From His Heart. This Realy Makes Me Cry Because Its Very Difficult Time In Christianity. Thats Why Many People Fade. May Jesus Strengthen Us Like Paul, 254702123818

    It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
