1 Timothy 3:14 – 4:11

We continue our study of 1 Timothy. Paul begins by describing the church as the pillar of Truth in the world. Then gives a brief Gospel summary he calls “The mystery of godliness.” He tnen gives a warning about the presence of false teachers, and concludes with an admonition for us to train ourselves in godliness.

1 Timothy 3:8-13

We continue our study of 1 Timothy with Paul’s instructions for appointing deacons within the church. We note that deacons are servants with no leadership function. We concluded with a review of Paul’s instructions about overseers and deacons and the questions these instructions raise for today’s churches.
