for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 1 Timothy 2:2

Paul now especially identifies those who are to be included in “supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks.” In the previous verse, he said, “for all men.” It is an all-inclusive statement, but now he continues by making special note.Read the rest

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 1 Timothy 2:1

…having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck, 1Timothy1:19

Paul’s thoughts about faith and conscience are rather consistent, having stated almost the same thing as he did in verse 1:5 –

This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 1 Timothy 1:18

There is as much debate about what “charge” Paul is committing to Timothy as there is about a glass being half full or half empty.Read the rest
