Three Contributions of Second Timothy

Second Timothy makes at least three important contributions to the New Testament. First, it provides significant insight into Paul’s final days. Second, since in many ways this is Paul’s testament, it provides important clues into issues that the apostle considered significant. Third, 2 Timothy contains an important doctrinal passage concerning the inspiration of Scripture (3:16–17) and two important prophecies concerning future threats to the church (3:1–9; 4:3–4).
