Timothy

Tim"o*thy

(Bible) A disciple and companion of St. Paul. He was the son of a Greek and a Jewess, and his home was either at Derbe, or Lystra in Lycaonia. Paul set him apart as a minister of the new gospel, and after preaching in Macedonia and Achaia, he went, at Paul's request to Ephesus, and accompanied the apostle to Jerusalem. It was to him that the two epistles to Timothy were addressed by the apostle Paul. According to tradition, Timothy suffered martyrdom under Domitian. The Student's Cyclopedia, 1897.
