The book of 2nd Timothy gives us a glimpse of who Jesus is in the New Testament (N.T).
The very first verse states that in Jesus is the PROMISE of life 2 Timothy 1:1). In him, is the PROMISE of life, because in him is the PROVISION of life since Jesus abolished death (2 Timothy 1:10). In other words, Jesus is the Killer of the DEATH KILLER, our Savior. He did so by rising from the dead, by the command of God, stripping death of all its power and rendering it futile. But man is appointed to die once and then enter into judgment (Hebrews 9:27), but who will be the judge. 2 Timothy 4:1 states that Jesus is the judge of the living and the dead and 2 Timothy 4:8 establishes the fact that Jesus is the RIGHTEOUS judge.
In 2 Timothy, Jesus is the One in whom is the PROMISE of life, because He is the PROVISION Of life, the DEATH KILLER / Savior and the RIGHTEOUS Judge.
Points to ponder:
2 Timothy is the book that affirms that ALL SCRIPTURE is God breathed / inspired of God’s (2 Timothy 3:16). Question: Has the inspiration of God, inspired you and me?
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life, and he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” (John 11:24-25). Have you believed to live and never die?
