I saw something in 2 Timothy today that I had not seen before, the theme of suffering. The concept shows up in 2 Timothy1:8, 1:12, 2:3, 2:9 – 10, and 4:5. The interesting thing to me here is the contrasts, especially in chapter 1. Timothy is described as tearful, tired, timid, fearful, and possibly ashamed. Paul deals with that by telling Timothy to join in Paul’s suffering for the gospel, 1:8.
