On his second missionary journey Paul found Timothy at Lystra, and because of his commendation by the brethren at Lystra and Iconium, Paul determined to take Timothy along as a member of the missionary party. Timothy became one of Paul’s closest companions, and to him Paul addressed two of his three pastoral letters. Paul gave Timothy the earliest instructions for the orderly arrangement of the local church, the qualities of leaders in the local church, and the need to teach the truth.
