Timothy Joins Paul and Silas September 15, 2016

Here are my thoughts on Acts 16:1-5.

Summary: In this passage, Paul and Silas traveled to Derbe and Lystra – where they encountered Timothy, a well-regarded believer. Paul then circumcised Timothy so that he could accompany them as they preached the Gospel message to Jews.

Thoughts: I am eager to meet Timothy in the next life and learn more about him. How did his parents meet? Did the residents of Lystra gossip about their relationship? What role did his mother play in his journey to faith in Christ? Did he first hear the Gospel message when Paul and Barnabas arrived in Lystra? Did he hear about the attempts by the residents of Lystra to offer sacrifices to Paul and Barnabas – and if so, what were his thoughts on their actions? Why did other believers in Lystra and Iconium commend his faith? Did he accept Paul’s decision regarding his circumcision with alacrity?
