St Timothy the Apostle Statue
Made of pewter, comes in deluxe gift box with laminated prayer card.
Born at Lystra, Lycaenia, Timothy was the son of a Greek father and Eunice, a converted Jewess. He joined St. Paul when Paul preached at Lystra replacing Barnabas, and became Paul`s close friend and confidant. Paul allowed him to be circumcised to placate the Jews, since he was the son of a Jewess, and he then accompanied Paul on his second missionary journey. When Paul was forced to flee Berea because of the enmity of the Jews there, Timothy remained, but after a time was sent to Thessalonica to report on the condition of the Christians there and to encourage them under persecution, a report that led to Paul`s first letter to the Thessalonians when he joined Timothy at Corinth.
Timothy and Erastus were sent to Macedonia in 58, went to Corinth to remind the Corinthians of Paul`s teaching, and then accompanied Paul into Macedonia and Achaia.
