Paul writing to Timothy (1 Timothy).

Paul, Timothy and Silas journeyed through Asia Minor, Macedonia and Greece, preaching the gospel. When he went to Athens, he left Timothy and Silas at Berea and Thessalonica, to teach the church. They joined him again at Corinth. As happens in most churches, trouble erupted in the church at Ephesus. Ephesus was the crossroad of the world. Everyone traded there. And the brought their own religion with them. With they became Christians, some of their old religious beliefs became to creep into Christianity. Paul sent Timothy to correct the church. Timothy became the first bishop of Ephesus. Paul wrote to Timothy to encourage him in the faith, knowing how hard it is to convince people of the error of their ways. Paul prayed for Timothy to keep the faith.
