2 Timothy is a letter written by Paul, a past persecutor of Christian Jews, to his son in the faith, Timothy. Paul wrote his letter from the dark, dank recesses of a Roman prison charging Timothy to stand firm in his faith and to unashamedly proclaim the gospel at a time when many believers in the faith were running in fear due to increased persecution. Paul's words echo through history to us as current day students in the Word: Be diligent! Run the race! Equip yourself with the Scriptures!
