People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 1:16


2Ti 1:16 Onesiphorus . . . oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain. How different with this faithful disciple, from the rest of the Asiatics! In spite of Paul's chain, he often visited and cheered him. Paul was chained to a soldier (Ac 28:16,20). See also 2Ti 4:19.

Discussion for 2 Timothy 1

  • A disciple
    "..according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus.." We have all read the story of the Beginning many times. Have you wondered then why Adam and the woman were NOT killed outright for their disregard, disrespect, and DISOBEDIENCE; as the LORD warned them of; saying that "In the day you eat thereof, you shall surely die?" Mercy promised through Christ coming let them live and go free.

    2 Timothy is a good book to read, because God inspired Apostle Paul through the Holy Spirit to write it. Reading all of Paul's episode is inspiring for what he had to go through, even the beating and rejection from his other Apostles. All we have to do is read Romans through Philemon and find out why. Please let this go through in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. ......
