The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Timothy, Fight the Good Fight (1:18-20)
Timothy, Fight the Good Fight (1:18-20)

Before moving on to instructions to the whole church, Paul returns to underline Timothy's standing orders concerning the heretics. It is this purpose of instructing Timothy that controls the entire first chapter. The instruction of verse 18 is the command of verse 3 and all that has followed. Now, however, in repeating the charge to Timothy, Paul speaks to him as to the minister whose special calling by God carries with it special obligations.
