Central idea: Do not be ashamed to tell others about the Lord, but share in suffering by the power of God. Observations: Testimony: Greek marturion. A legal witness to the Gospel. Paul gives Timothy two charges and two ways in which (or reasons why or explanations of how) that will be carried out: Follow the pattern of right teaching I taught you (and do while living in faith and in love) Guard the deposit entrusted to you (with the help of the Holy Spirit) Questions: "what has been entrusted to me" (v. 12), "good deposit entrusted to you" (v. 14): What is this "deposit" that God has entrusted us with? " He is able to guard" (v. 12), then the imperative "guard" (v. 14): Why the difference? What is the "for which" that Paul was appointed for? Was it because: God saved us and called to a holy calling [9a] Christ's purpose and grace [9b] The appearing of Christ which resulted in the abolishing of death and the bringing of life through the Gospel [10] ===> I think this might be it, the word "gospel", "for which" What does it mean that Paul is a prisoner of Christ? [v. 8] "Slave of Christ" in other translations. How are we ashamed of the witness to the Gospel? How are we ashamed of people who are prisoners for the Gospel? (worried about retribution and suffering? Seems like the reason given v. 8c. "Don't be afraid of suffering, but share in it") The whole Gospel is in here! God saved us [9a] And then called us to a holy calling [9b] Not because of works [9c] But because of grace [9d] And it's a grace we've always had! [9e] But was made clear when Christ came [10] His grace is made totally clear by: The swallowing up of the grave Bringing about eternal life Paul is not ashamed because of two reasons (one leading to the other) [these can be our encouragements if we are ashamed or fearful of sharing the Gospel]: He knows who He believes (Christ). He's trusting Him. He is convinced that Christ can guard the deposit entrusted to Paul until Paul sees Jesus face to face. Arcing Notes and Questions: I chose action result for 10c to 10d because the natural result of Jesus bringing life is the the abolishing of death. I get the ordering from 1 Corinthians 15:54-55 (though Hebrews 2:14-15 might indicate the opposite, it is possible they happen at the same time) Is there any logical relationship when you have " by ". Is that really an action manner? There is no verb in the second clause, so it's ambiguous. It's not that the action is carried it out that way… I'm not sure that 10c-10d should be the purpose of 10b. Did Christ really reveal His grace in order to abolish death and bring life? Or did He reveal His grace by abolishing death? We get the "by" by the enclosing manner, maybe it's really just a restatement: Idea explanation. He revealed His grace by His appearing, and His grace appearing is further explained by His abolishing death and bringing life.
