Bible: Acts 16:1-5

Timothy Joins Paul and Silas

16:1 He also came to Derbe 1  and to Lystra. 2  A disciple 3  named Timothy was there, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer, 4  but whose father was a Greek. 5  16:2 The brothers in Lystra 6  and Iconium 7  spoke well 8  of him. 9  16:3 Paul wanted Timothy 10  to accompany him, and he took 11  him and circumcised 12  him because of the Jews who were in those places, 13  for they all knew that his father was Greek. 14  16:4 As they went through the towns, 15  they passed on 16  the decrees that had been decided on by the apostles and elders in Jerusalem 17  for the Gentile believers 18  to obey. 19  16:5 So the churches were being strengthened in the faith and were increasing in number every day. 20
