Readings from 1 & 2 Timothy

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. Together with Titus, these are called the "Pastorals."
