Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 1:15


1:15 All who are in Asia - Who had attended me at Rome for a while. Are turned away from me - What, from Paul the aged, the faithful soldier, and now prisoner of Christ! This was a glorious trial, and wisely reserved for that time, when he was on the borders of immortality. Perhaps a little measure of the same spirit might remain with him under whose picture are those affecting words, The true effigy of Francis Xavier, apostle of the Indies, forsaken of all men, dying in a cottage.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 1:15


2Ti 1:15 All they which are in Asia be turned away from me. The language seems to mean that there had been a large defection in Asia already. Some think that Paul refers to professors of Christ from the province of Asia, then in Rome, who had all deserted him. Phygellus and Hermogenes. Nothing more than this reference is known of them.

Discussion for 2 Timothy 1:15

  • I think that Paul was mentioning a couple of people not a continent of churches.
  • Jan Davis for verse 15
    If the Asian churches had deflected from the faith, along with Phygelus and Hermogenes, then why did Jesus commend the 7 churches in Asia Minor in Revelation 2 3 for their faith and endurance, and for recognising false apostles, calling them liars, and rejected them?
