Read. 2 Timothy 3:10-17
10 But you have paid attention to my teaching, conduct, purpose, faithfulness, patience, love, and endurance.11 You have seen me experience physical abuse and ordeals in places such as Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. I put up with all sorts of abuse, and the Lord rescued me from it all! 12 In fact, anyone who wants to live a holy life in Christ Jesus will be harassed. 13 But evil people and swindlers will grow even worse, as they deceive others while being deceived themselves.
14 But you must continue with the things you have learned and found convincing. You know who taught you. 15 Since childhood you have known the holy scriptures that help you to be wise in a way that leads to salvation through faith that is in Christ Jesus.16 Every scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for showing mistakes, for correcting, and for training character, 17 so that the person who belongs to God can be equipped to do everything that is good.
Reflect. Why are we looking at 2 Timothy today? Acts ends with a hopeful note in Acts 28. Paul is under house arrest, yet he is able to continue to share the love of Jesus in a powerful way. Tradition says that Paul was later imprisoned and wrote 2 Timothy shortly before his death around 64 CE. If this is the case, this means that 2 Timothy is the last (or one of the last) things written by Paul and presents a look at the final days of his life.
