2 Timothy 2:8-10
Remember Jesus Christ,
Therefore, from v8b,c
risen from the dead,
Content of v8a,d
the offspring of David,
as preached in my gospel,
for which I am suffering,
Contrast to v8a-d
bound with chains as a criminal.
v9a,b cause of 9c
Also the cause of 2c
But the word of God is not bound!
Result of v9a,b
Therefore of v9a-c
I endure
for the sake of the elect,
that they also may obtain the salvation
that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
Location of salvation
Paul's suffers being bound for the gospel
Because Paul suffers so,
the gospel is advanced.
Paul does all this for the good of those chosen by God,
and they have been divinely chosen to obtain salvation.
Paul preached the gospel of Jesus Christ,
the long awaited Eternal King of the whole world,
who in Him holds salvation and eternal glory.
Therefore Timothy has everything he needs to remember Jesus Christ.
1. Identify the main command in 2 Timothy 2:8–10 . What affect does that have on how you read the rest of the passage? Remember Jesus Christ Helps me know how remembering Christ is important always, and what would help me to fulfill this command 2. What specifically does Paul want these believers to remember about Jesus? Why might he call out these particular things? That Jesus is alive, and will be forever He is the offspring of David, long expected king of David Jesus is the King of all forever 3. Summarize 2 Timothy 2:9–10 in your own words, and relate it back to the command in 2 Timothy 2:8 . Paul suffers for the gospel and for the elect. But the gospel will not be limited, and the elect will receive glory Because of this, Timothy has everything he needs to remember Jesus Christ. 4. Explain in your own words what way the word of God “is not bound” in 2 Timothy 2:9 . The Word of God, the gospel, will prevail even when there is suffering, and also because there is suffering. Paul's suffering serves the spread of the gospel. It confirms the worth of it, and advances it. (e.g. Phil 1:12 - 14). v 5. Explain the “that” (or “in order that”) in the middle of 2 Timothy 2:10 . Paul endured (suffered) for a purpose. What was it? The purpose that the elect may be saved 6. Now, in light of your answers to the first two questions, explain the “Therefore” at the beginning of 2 Timothy 2:10 . How does what comes before the “Therefore” explain or ground what comes before? Because the Word of God, the gospel is spread because of suffering, so Paul endures everything for the sake of the elect. 7. Paul says he suffers everything “for the sake of the elect” ( 2 Timothy 2:10 ). Why is he willing to suffer (sit in prison) for those God has sovereignly chosen for salvation? Why not leave it up to God? Because part of being a part of this sovereignly choosing is by suffering for the gospel. Or suffering for the gospel is the means by which God's election is done. Election does not mean that God does not use human effort. The means of human effort is also divinely and sovereignly arranged 8. Read Ephesians 1:3–4 and Acts 18:9–10 (Paul), and John 17:6 and John 6:37 (Jesus). What do you learn about the relationship between election (God’s sovereignly choosing some for salvation) and evangelism (our role in speaking the gospel)? God chooses and also commands Paul to preach (Acts 18:9-10) Jesus speaks to the combination of both Divine sovereignty and human effort (also John 10:16) 9. If salvation of the elect happens through means (someone preaching the gospel), and the salvation of the elect is sure, what does that mean for your evangelism/ministry? My evangelism and ministry is also under divine sovereignty God has provided all I need to do the ministry He has asked me to do I have the confidence the elect will be saved I have the assurance that my efforts will not be wasted or will fail I also have the encouragement that any suffering I encounter for the gospel is advancing the gospel Takeaway The sovereignty of God is to lead to me being encouraged to do His will,not to passivity The suffering for the gospel advances the gospel, is not just a side distraction which contributes nothing to the gospel.

Thanks Trevor.  Credit must go to Josué Pineda.  I liked how he did his phrasing and learnt from that.  One thing I appreciate about this new Biblearc site is I get to see others' work easier, and get to learn along the way.  Thank you for your continued perseverance.  Blessings!

Jeannie, I just love how you have used parts of your answers to Dr Piper's questions on 2 Timothy 2:8-10 from his Look at the Book website, to compile your Summary diagram. I found your use of the Phrasing module easy to understand, and very creative.
