Death lurked in the shadows . . . and Paul knew it. Dropped into a dungeon during the reign of deranged Nero, Paul spent his last days lonely and cold . . . but not desperate and despondent. Writing by lamplight, Paul penned his “swan song”—one final, passionate letter to his “beloved son” Timothy (2 Timothy 1:2). A last will and testament of sorts, 2 Timothy is filled with strong exhortations, insightful instructions, and intimate reflections—and it spurred Timothy onward in his race of faith. It will do the same for us . . . if we hear and heed its admonitions. Then, when death comes, like Paul we will declare: “I have finished the course, I have kept the faith” (4:7).
