Biography, Facts and
Information about Timothy
The following info
provides a concise biography with facts and information about Timothy:
a young disciple who was Paul's companion in many of his journeyings.
His mother, Eunice, and his grandmother, Lois, are mentioned as
eminent for their piety (2 Timothy 1:5). We know nothing of his
father but that he was a Greek (Acts 16:1). He is first brought into
notice at the time of Paul's second visit to Lystra (16:2), where he
probably resided, and where it seems he was converted during Paul's
first visit to that place (1 Timothy 1:2; 2Tim 3:11). The apostle
having formed a high opinion of his "own son in the faith," arranged
that he should become his companion (Acts 16:3), and took and
circumcised him, so that he might conciliate the Jews.
was designated to the office of an evangelist (1 Timothy 4:14), and
went with Paul in his journey through Phrygia, Galatia, and Mysia;
also to Troas and Philippi and Berea (Acts 17:14). Thence he
followed Paul to Athens, and was sent by him with Silas on a mission
to Thessalonica (17:15; 1 Thessalonians 3:2). We next find him at
Corinth (1 Thessalonians 1:1; 2th 1:1) with Paul. He passes now out
of sight for a few years, and is again noticed as with the apostle
at Ephesus (Acts 19:22), whence he is sent on a mission into
Macedonia. He accompanied Paul afterwards into Asia (20:4), where he
was with him for some time. When the apostle was a prisoner at Rome,
Timothy joined him (Phil 1:1), where it appears he also suffered
imprisonment (Hebrews 13:23). During the apostle's second
imprisonment he wrote to Timothy, asking him to rejoin him as soon
as possible, and to bring with him certain things which he had left
at Troas, his cloak and parchments (2 Timothy 4:13). According to
tradition, after the apostle's death he settled in Ephesus as his
sphere of labour, and there found a martyr's grave.
We have selected Timothy as one of the most important people and
character from the Bible and provided a biography and character outline
of this famous person.
Much of the information is taken from
the classic reference books including
Matthew George Easton "Easton's Bible Dictionary" and Ashley S Johnson "Condensed Biblical Cyclopedia".
