Dr. Mounce,

Your article here confirms what I discovered this past week. I am teaching through 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus and one of the commentaries that I am referencing is The NIV Application Commentary, this volume by Walter L. Liefeld. He notes on p. 224 in the footnote on that page that "There is nothing in Acts or in any of Paul's other letters to suggest that Timothy was timid. On the contrary, he was a strong associate of Paul's, who should not be disdained for any reason but accepted as his envoy." Your article here is helpful to me. I have been a pastor for over 25 years and had always heard and taught that Timothy was "timid." But that really doesn't seem to agree with the rest of scripture and the assignments he was given by Paul. Thanks for your comments. I enjoy reading your posts on Koinonia.
