Bible 107 Return to Syllabus

Readings from 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus

These letters were written toward the end of Paul's life, apparently after he had been let out of his Roman imprisonment mentioned in Acts 28. 1 Timothy was written while he was still free, and 2 Timothy was written after he had been imprisoned again. Titus was a letter written by Paul to his co-worker Titus telling him how to order the church in Crete. It was apparently sent about the same time as 1 Timothy. These three letters are called the "Pastorals."
