    ¶ Pablo, apstol de Jess, el Cristo, por la voluntad de Dios, segn la promesa de la vida que es en Cristo Jess,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 1:1

    Verse 1.
    Paul an apostle] St. Paul at once shows his office, the authority on which he held it, and the end for which it was given him. He was an apostle - an extraordinary ambassador from heaven. He had his apostleship by the will of God - according to the counsel and design of God's infinite wisdom and goodness. And he was appointed that he might proclaim that eternal life which God had in view for mankind by the incarnation of his Son Jesus Christ, and which was the end of all the promises he had made to men, and the commandments he had delivered to all his prophets since the world began. The mention of this life was peculiarly proper in the apostle, who had now the sentence of death in himself, and who knew that he must shortly seal the truth with his blood.

    His life was hidden with Christ in God; and he knew that, as soon as he should be absent from the body, he should be present with the Lord. With these words he both comforted himself and his son Timothy.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Paul an apostle of Jesus Christ , etc.] Not of men, nor by men, but by Jesus Christ, from whom he was sent; by whom he was qualified; in whose name he came, and ministered; and whom he preached. Of his name Paul, and of his office, as an apostle, (see Gill on Romans 1:1) into which office he came by the will of God ; not by the will of man, no, not of the best of men, of James, Cephas, or John, or any of the other apostles; nor by his own will, he did not thrust himself into this office, or take this honour upon himself; nor was it owing to any merits of his, which he always disclaims, but to the will and grace of God; it was by the secret determining will of God, that he was from all eternity separated unto the Gospel of Christ; and it was by the revealed will of God to the church, that he, with Barnabas, was set apart to the ministry of the word; (see Romans 1:1 Acts 13:2). According to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus ; or with respect unto it; this points at the sum and substance, or subject matter, and end of his apostleship, for which this grace was given to him, which was to publish the free promise of life and salvation by Jesus Christ. By life here is meant, not this corporeal life, which, and a continuation of it, were promised in the covenant of works, on condition of man's obedience to it; but eternal life, the promise of which is a free promise made by God, of his own free sovereign will and pleasure, in the covenant of grace, from everlasting; and is an absolute and unconditional one, not at all depending upon the works of the law, or obedience to it; (see Romans 14,16 Galatians 3:18) and this promise is in Christ, in whom all the promises are yea and arisen: for it was made before the world began, ( Titus 1:2) when the persons on whose account it was made were not in actual being; but Christ, their head and representative, then existed; and to him it was given, and into his hands was it put for them, where it is sure to all the seed; and not only the promise, but the life itself is in him, and which is here intended. Christ, as Mediator, asked it of his Father for all his people, and he gave it to him, where it is hid safe and secure. Christ is the Prince or author of life; he is the procuring cause of it; he was sent, and came, that his sheep might have it; he gave his flesh, his human nature for it; and by his sufferings and death removed all obstructions which sin had thrown in the way, and opened the way for their enjoyment of it; and he is the giver of it to as many as the Father has given him; nor is it to be had in any other way, or of any other; but of him; and it lies in the knowledge of him, communion with him, and conformity to him. Now it is the business, of Gospel ministers, not to direct persons to work for life, or to seek to obtain eternal life by their own works of righteousness, but to hold forth the word of life, or to show men the way of life and salvation by Christ alone.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - The
    promise of eternal life to believers in Christ Jesus, is the leading subject of ministers who are employed according to the will of God. The blessings here named, are the best we can ask for our belove friends, that they may have peace with God the Father and Christ Jesu our Lord. Whatever good we do, God must have the glory. True believer have in every age the same religion as to substance. Their faith i unfeigned; it will stand the trial, and it dwells in them as a livin principle. Thus pious women may take encouragement from the success of Lois and Eunice with Timothy, who proved so excellent and useful minister. Some of the most worthy and valuable ministers the church of Christ has been favoured with, have had to bless God for earl religious impressions made upon their minds by the teaching of their mothers or other female relatives.
