People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 3:17


2Ti 3:17 That the man of God. The preacher. See 1Ti 6:11 1Ki 13:1 2Ki 6:6. May be perfect. Fully fitted for his work. The sense is "complete" (Revised Version). Thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Fully equipped. If he is master of the Holy Scriptures, he is so equipped. If this was true when Paul wrote, with only a part of the New Testament written, with what emphasis may it be said now when we have both the Old Testament and New Testament in full!
