    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:1

    ¶ Pablo, apstol de Jess, el Cristo, por mandamiento del Dios salvador nuestro, y del Seor Jess, el Cristo, esperanza nuestra.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Timothy 1:1

    Verse 1.
    Paul an apostle-by the commandment of God] We have already seen that the term apostolov, apostle, literally signifies a person sent from one to another, without implying any particular dignity in the person, or importance in the message. But it is differently used in the New Testament, being applied to those who were sent expressly from God Almighty, with the message of salvation to mankind. It is, therefore, the highest character any human being can have; and he message is the most important which even God himself can send to his intelligent creatures. It was by the express command of God that St. Paul went to the Gentiles preaching the doctrine of salvation by faith in Christ Jesus.

    Jesus Christ-our hope] Without Jesus, the world was hopeless; the expectation of being saved can only come to mankind by his Gospel. He is called our hope, as he is called our life, our peace, our righteousness, &c., because from him hope, life, peace, righteousness, and all other blessings proceed.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Paul an apostle of Jesus Christ , etc.] His name was well known to Timothy, and very dear to him; and so was his office as an apostle, and which he mentions, not so much for Timothy's sake, but for the sake of others, that what he delivers in this epistle might come with its proper weight and authority, and be regarded: of this his office, as well as name, (see Gill on Romans 1:1). How he came into this office next follows, not of himself, nor by men, but by the commandment of God ; the appointment and decree of God, by which he was separated to this office, even from eternity, and is the same with the counsel or will of God, ( Ephesians 1:1) or it may refer to the order given by the Holy Ghost to the church; to set apart him and Barnabas, to the work of the ministry, ( Acts 13:2) though this commandment is called the commandment of God our Saviour ; by whom is meant God the Father; and this character of him is mentioned, to show that the embassy the apostle was sent on as such, and in which the discharge of his office greatly lay, was the affair of salvation, to publish and declare that to the sons of men; and also to show the concern which God the Father has in that work: he resolved upon it, and appointed his people to it, and determined upon saving them by his Son, whom he pitched upon to be his salvation; he drew the scheme of it by his infinite wisdom, and sent his Son into the world to execute it; and he sends his ministers to publish the Gospel of it, and his Spirit to reveal and apply it to the hearts of his chosen ones; and keeps them by his power unto it, and will at last put them into the full possession of it; so that this character well suits with him, to whom it is also given, ( Titus 3:4) as well as with his Son Jesus Christ, to whom it is more commonly ascribed, and from whom he is here distinguished: for it follows, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope ; who is both the author, and the ground and foundation of the grace of hope of salvation, and eternal life; not earthly enjoyments, nor any external thing whatever; not birth privileges, carnal descent, religious education, morality and civility, obedience to the law of Moses, moral or ceremonial; nor a profession of Christ, nor a bare subjection to his ordinances, but he himself: and there is good ground to hope for pardon through his blood, which was shed for it; and for justification by his righteousness, which is freely wrought out, and freely imputed; and for salvation by him, since it is in him, and in no other, and is completely effected by him, and that for the worst of sinners, and is wholly of free grace, and which everyone that believes in him shall enjoy; and so for eternal life, which hope is conversant with; and good reason there is for it in Christ, seeing it is in him, and in his gift; what his grace gives a meetness for, and his righteousness a title to; and which he is possessed of in the name of his people, prepares for them, and will introduce them into. The Complutensian edition reads, of the Father, and, our Saviour Jesus Christ; and so the Ethiopic version, of God, and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 -
    Jesus Christ is a Christian's hope; all our hopes of eternal life ar built upon him; and Christ is in us the hope of glory. The apostl seems to have been the means of Timothy's conversion; who served with him in his ministry, as a dutiful son with a loving father. That whic raises questions, is not for edifying; that which gives occasion for doubtful disputes, pulls down the church rather than builds it up Godliness of heart and life can only be kept up and increased, by the exercise of faith in the truths and promises of God, through Jesu Christ.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. An
    apostle of Jesus Christ. This title appears in the salutations of Romans, 1st and 2nd Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians. In Philippians, Paul and Timothy the servants of Jesus Christ. Philemon a prisoner. This formal announcement of apostleship is strange in a private letter.

    By the commandment of God (kat epitaghn qeou). The phrase in Rom. xvi. 26. Kat' ejpitaghn absolutely, by commandment, 1 Corinthians vii. 6, 2 Cor. viii. 8. Paul uses dia qelhmatov qeou by the will of God. See 1 Corinthians, i. 1; 2 Cor. i. 1; Eph. i. 1; Col. i. 1. Comp. 2 Tim. i. 1.

    Our Savior (swthrov hmwn). Comp. Luke i. 47; Jude 25. o P. Six times in the Pastorals. Used of both God and Christ (see Tit. i. 3, 4; ii. 10, 13; iii. 4, 6). The saving of men appears as God's direct will and act, 1 Tim. ii. 4; Tit. iii. 5; 2 Tim. i. 9 as Christ's work, 1 Tim. i. 15, comp. 2 Timothy ii. 10. In LXX swthr hope is predicated of Christ by Ignatius, Ephesians 21; Philad v. The salutation as a whole has no parallel in Paul. Jesus Christ which is our hope. The phrase is unique in N.T. Comp. Col. i. 27, where, however, the construction is doubtful. Elpiv hope is predicated of Christ by Ignatius, Ephesians 21; Philad. v. The Salutation as a whole has no parallel in Paul.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:1 {According to the commandment} (kat' epitagen). A late _Koin_ word (Polybius, Diodorus), but a Pauline word also in N.T. this very idiom ("by way of command") in #1Co 7:6; 2Co 8:8; Ro 16:26; 1Ti 1:1; Tit 1:3. Paul means to say that he is an apostle under orders. {Of God our Savior} (qeou swteros hemwn). Genitive case with epitagen. In the LXX swter (old word from swzw for agent in saving, applied to deities, princes, kings, etc.) occurs 20 times, all but two to God. The Romans called the emperor "Savior God." In the N.T. the designation of God as Savior is peculiar to #Lu 1:47; Jude 1:25; 1Ti 1:3; 2:3; 4:10; Tit 1:3; 2:10; 3:4. In the other Epistles Paul uses it of Christ (#Php 3:20; Eph 5:23) as in #2Ti 1:10. In #2Pe 1:1 we have "our God and Savior Jesus Christ" as in #Tit 2:13. {Our hope} (tes elpidos hemwn). Like #Col 1:27. More than the author and object of hope, "its very substance and foundation" (Ellicott).
