As for Timothy's ancestry, it says in Acts 16:2
"...Lystra, where a disciple named Timothy lived, whose mother was a Jewess and a believer, but whose father was a Greek."
As for conversion, well he clearly converted (from whatever Greek religion he may have had) to the true religion, whatever you want to call it.
thank you solomon...i wonder if timothy ever met the master YAHUSHUAH
i wonder if timothy ever met the master YAHUSHUAH
--is it important Tim? i suppose not, otherwise Paul should have mentioned that.
--what is surprising, is the fact that three (3) out of four (4) gospel writers did not even meet The Master. only apostle Matthew (the levite) wrote a synopsis of what he personally witnessed.
well timothy must have grew uo during the time of YAHSHUAH
and im sure all for gospel writers knew the master
well, this might be a side-issue only, but in saying "im sure all for gospel writers knew the master" do you mean here 'knew' as personal experience or direct knowledge? or merely a knowledge derived from what others "told"?
