  • The Companion of Scripture
  • The Clarity of Scripture
  • The Purpose of Scripture
  • The Sufficiency of Scripture

 Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5. What has Timothy learned and firmly believed? Who taught him these things? How are these things related to Scripture?
  2. The fact that Timothy was “acquainted with the sacred writings” from childhood implies what about Scripture? Why is this so important for our commitment to Scripture?
  3. According to verse 15, what is the purpose of Scripture? How does this direct our reading of Scripture?
  4. For what is Scripture sufficient? What are some things that compete with the sufficiency of Scripture?
  5. According to Paul’s commands for Timothy in 4:1-5, what place ought Scripture have in the life of the church? In individuals’ lives?

 Memory Verse of the Week:

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. (ESV)
