This last letter of Paul was written during a second imprisonment in Rome, about A.D. 67 or 68. Paul was fully aware he was soon to be executed, and he both encouraged Timothy, who would carry on his work, and warned against the growing corruption of true Christian teaching. The letter throbs with evidence of the great apostle’s triumphant faith, and his confidence in the Lord whom he would soon join.
