He sent the letter to Timothy, whom he had left at Ephesus. He wrote to encourage Timothy in his responsibilities for overseeing the work of the Ephesian church and possibly the other churches of the province of Asia. It is possible that he wrote this epistle from Philippi after being released from his first imprisonment at Rome. In this epistle to the young pastor Timothy. He exhorts Timothy to guard against false doctrine, protect public worship, and develop mature leadership.
