    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    Y lo que has oído de mí entre muchos testigos, esto encarga a hombres fieles que sern idneos para ensear tambin a otros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 2:2

    Verse 2. The things that thou hast heard of me] Those
    doctrines which I have preached the most publicly, and which many persons can attest. But he seems to refer here to the doctrines delivered to him when, in the presence of many witnesses, he laid his hands upon him; see 1 Tim. vi. 12. Then the apostle gave him the proper form of sound words which he was to teach; and now he tells him to commit those truths to faithful men in the same way that they were committed to him, that the truth might be preserved in the Church, and holy men appointed successively to preach it. These truths are still continued in the Church, and still there are faithful men who proclaim them. But where is the uninterrupted apostolical succession! Who can tell? Probably it does not exist on the face of the world. All the pretensions to it by certain Churches are as stupid as they are idle and futile. He who appeals to this for his authority as a Christian minister, had best sit down till he has made it out; and this will be by the next Greek kalends.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And the things that thou hast heard of me , etc.] Meaning the
    doctrines of the Gospel, the form of sound words. The Arabic version renders it, the secrets, or mysteries that thou hast heard of me; the mysteries of the grace of God, which he had often heard him discourse of, unfold and explain: among many witnesses ; or by them; which some understand of the testimonies out of Moses, and the prophets, with which the apostle confirmed what he delivered; for the doctrines of justification, pardon of sin, etc. by Christ, were bore witness to by the prophets; though rather the many persons, who, with Timothy, heard the apostle preach, and were and would be sufficient witnesses for Timothy, on occasion, that what he preached and committed to others were the same he had heard and received from the Apostle Paul; unless reference should be had here to the time of imposition of hands upon him, when he received some ministerial gifts, or an increase of them; at which time the apostle might deliver to him the form of doctrine he was to preach, and that in the presence of the presbytery, who joined in the action, and so were witnesses of what was said to him: the same commit thou to faithful men ; who not only have received the grace of God, and are true believers in Christ, but are men of great uprightness and integrity; who having the word of God, will speak it out boldly, and faithfully, and keep back nothing that is profitable, but declare the whole counsel of God, without any mixture or adulteration; for the Gospel being committed to their trust, they would become stewards, and of such it is required that they be faithful; and therefore this is mentioned as a necessary and requisite qualification in them; and not only so, but they must be such who shall be able or sufficient to teach others also . No man is sufficient for these things, of himself, but his sufficiency is of God; it is he who makes men able ministers of the word, by giving them gifts suitable for such work; so that they have a furniture in them, a treasure in their earthen vessels, an understanding of the sacred Scriptures, a gift of explaining them, and a faculty of speaking to edification; and so are apt to teach men, to their profit and advantage, The Ethiopic version renders it, who are fit to teach the foolish.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - As our
    trials increase, we need to grow stronger in that which is good our faith stronger, our resolution stronger, our love to God and Chris stronger. This is opposed to our being strong in our own strength. All Christians, but especially ministers, must be faithful to their Captain, and resolute in his cause. The great care of a Christian mus be to please Christ. We are to strive to get the mastery of our lust and corruptions, but we cannot expect the prize unless we observe the laws. We must take care that we do good in a right manner, that ou good may not be spoken evil of. Some who are active, spend their zea about outward forms and doubtful disputations. But those who striv lawfully shall be crowned at last. If we would partake the fruits, we must labour; if we would gain the prize, we must run the race. We mus do the will of God, before we receive the promises, for which reason we have need of patience. Together with our prayers for others, that the Lord would give them understanding in all things, we must exhort an stir them up to consider what they hear or read.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. Among many witnesses (dia pollwn marturwn). Dia through the
    medium of, and therefore in the presence of.

    Commit (paraqou). As a trust or deposit (paraqhkh). See on chapter i. 12,14. In Paul only 1 Cor. x. 27.

    Faithful (pistoiv). Not believing, but trusty, as appears from the context. See on 1 John i. 9; Apoc. i. 5; iii. 14.

    Able (ikanoi). In Pastorals only here. Very common in Luke and Acts: a few times in Paul. See on many, Rom. xv. 23.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:2 {From me} (par' emou). As in #1:13. Paul was Timothy's chief teacher of Christ. {Among many witnesses} (dia pollwn marturwn). Plutarch has dia in this sense and Field (_Ot. Norv._) suggests that it is a legal phrase "supported by many witnesses." Not mere spectators, but testifiers. See Paul's use of dia #1Th 4:2; 2Co 2:4; Ro 2:27; 14:20. Paul in #1Co 15:1-8 gives many witnesses of the resurrection of Christ. {Commit thou} (paraqou). Second aorist middle imperative of paratiqemi (#1Ti 1:18) to deposit, same metaphor as paraqeke in #1:12,14. "Deposit thou." {Faithful} (pistois). "Trustworthy," "reliable," as in #1Ti 1:12 of Paul himself. {Able} (hikanoi). Capable, qualified, as in #1Co 15:9; 2Co 2:16; 3:5. {Others also} (kai heterous). Not necessarily "different," but "others in addition." this is the way to pass on the torch of the light of the knowledge of God in Christ. Paul taught Timothy who will teach others who will teach still others, an endless chain of teacher-training and gospel propaganda.
