Exposition of 1 Timothy Ch 6 (42 min)

Michael Penfold expounds 1 Timothy Ch 6 in which the Ephesian false teachers are condemned, and Timothy, the man of God, is charged – to “keep the commandment” and “guard the deposit”.

Exposition of 1 Timothy Ch 3 (47 min)

Mark Sweetnam expounds 1 Timothy Ch 3.

Mark deals with the issue of “the husband of one wife”, and also answers the question “What is a deacon?”…

Exposition of 1 Timothy Ch 2 (52 min)

Exposition of 1 Timothy Ch 1 (46 min)

After briefly introducing 1st and 2nd Timothy, Mervyn Hall expounds 1 Timothy Ch 1. He highlights the author, the addressee, the aim and the ambition of chapter.
