OAKRIDGE BIBLE CHAPEL

The Book of First Timothy (Cover-to-Cover Series)

In this stop on our journey through the biblical books we arrive at the first of what are commonly referred to as the pastoral epistles: 1 Timothy. It’s short but by no means does its brevity dampen its importance nor its significance.

This letter to Timothy forms an excellent instruction manual on setting up a new church, as it covers church leadership, discipline and administration; and all in only six chapters! Even for those not involved in leadership issues though, there is excellent instruction here on avoiding false teachers and how to contend for the faith in everyday life.

It is a jam-packed little letter and, to help us unpack at least parts of it, we welcome to the podcast Dr. Michael Easley. Dr. Easley’s ministry has spanned over four decades. He is the former president of the Moody Bible Institute and is the current president and host of Michael Easley inContext, a ministry designed to help listeners and readers “understand God’s word and apply it to their lives” (in fact, it was his Big Book series which inspired Cover-to-Cover!). Which is perfect, because that’s exactly what we’re going to invite him to help us do today with 1 Timothy.
