Scripture and
Perseverance in Faith

In 2 Timothy 3:15, St. Paul calls Timothy to persevere in the faith as he has learned it, for the sake of his own soul and those to whom he ministers. Timothy is specifically called to do so through continued use of “the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.”
