It is interesting to me that this time through the thing that stood out was the concern Paul had that Timothy lead well, keep the household in order. I saw some other things about one controversial passage but I will save that for later.
Paul is concerned about the teaching of sound doctrine in Ephesus. Has the need for that teaching changed? Other than my time in seminary, I do not recall much emphasis on doctrine in the churches I have attended in the last 40 years.
Apparently we do not need that any more. Must have been a cultural thing.
