2 Timothy 1:1—4:22
Paul wrote many letters to different churches and to different people. Paul wanted to tell others about Jesus. He wanted to help people who loved Jesus know the right things to do. Sometimes Paul wrote letters while he was on a trip. Sometimes he even wrote letters when he was in prison!
Paul wasn’t put in prison because he did anything wrong. Paul was put in prison several times because some people didn’t want him to tell other people about Jesus.
One time Paul was in a deep, dark dungeon. He wrote a letter to Timothy. Timothy was Paul’s friend. Paul wanted to tell Timothy many things. Paul also wanted Timothy to come and visit him in prison. Paul helped Timothy learn how to live as a follower of Jesus.
