i Timothy 3:14-16

14 Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, 15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. 16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:

He appeared in the flesh,
    was vindicated by the Spirit,[d]
was seen by angels,
    was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,
    was taken up in glory.

One response to “i Timothy 3:14-16

  1. Paul was teaching Timothy, as a young minister, how to manage the house of God and how to select leaders to assist him in his oversight. Paul identifies himself as a mentor, and writes the letter, so that if he is delayed, Timothy will have Paul’s wisdom and instruction to rely on in his duties.
