By Brian J. Tabb, General Editor J. I. Packer, Series edited by Dane Ortlund, Lane T. Dennis

... Show All

The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions that help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” that highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” that show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” that identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible.

The books of 1–2 Timothy and Titus are among Paul’s most personal and practical letters. The apostle writes to instruct these younger men in the importance of sound doctrine and urge them to rebuke false teaching.

This accessible study shows how the books of 1–2 Timothy and Titus exhort all Christians to protect and pass on the true gospel of Jesus Christ—the only power capable of saving and transforming sinners.
