1 Timothy: Elders and Deacons (Episode 75)

1 Timothy 3 begins with Paul saying, “The saying is trustworthy.” All of the words the apostle Paul wrote by inspiration are important, but this introductory phrase suggests that he wants his readers to pay close attention to what he is about to say in 1 Timothy 3. Why? Because he is beginning a discussion on the qualifications of elders and deacons, a matter that has a powerful effect on the health and wellbeing of any congregation of the Lord’s church.
