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.
