When Paul wrote 2 Timothy he was at the end of his life. He had invested the past several years in three trips around the northern Mediterranean sharing the gospel and training leaders for the communities of believers he planted. During most of that time he had Timothy with him. Timothy was his closest mentee. Paul had invested and trusted more to Timothy than any of the many men and women to whom he ministered. Paul knew he was facing execution. He knew his remaining time was short. 2 Timothy is the last recorded words we have from this apostle and they are addressed to his closest co-laborer. So this is not a casual missive.
