The first design of this epistle seems to have been, to
apprize Timothy of what had occurred during the imprisonment of
the Apostle, and to request him to come to Rome. But being
uncertain whether he should be suffered to live to see him, Paul
gives a variety of advices and encouragements, for the Faithful
discharge of his ministerial duties. As this was a private
epistle written to St. Paul's most intimate friend, under the
miseries of imprisonment, and in the near prospect of Death, it
shows the temper and character of the Apostle, and contains
convincing proofs that he sincerely believed the doctrines he
preached.
