The next book of the Bible we’ll study together is 2 Timothy. This is Paul’s last will and testament to his disciple Timothy. It is the last recorded epistle the Holy Spirit left us of Paul’s before Paul was executed by Nero and it urges Timothy to finish well as one entrusted with the rich treasure of the Gospel.
I’d encourage you to read its four short chapters as many times as you possibly can to let its message of being entrusted with the Gospel penetrate your soul. Pasted below is the outline of the book from Dr. Ray Van Neste.
