Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 2:2

_ _ amongGreek, “through,” that is, with the attestation (literally, “intervention”) of many witnesses, namely, the presbyters and others present at his ordination or consecration (1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Timothy 6:12).

_ _ commit — in trust, as a deposit (2 Timothy 1:14).

_ _ faithful — the quality most needed by those having a trust committed to them.

_ _ whoGreek, “(persons) such as shall be competent to teach (them to) others also.” Thus the way is prepared for inculcating the duty of faithful endurance (2 Timothy 2:3-13). Thou shouldest consider as a motive to endurance, that thou hast not only to keep the deposit for thyself, but to transmit it unimpaired to others, who in their turn shall fulfil the same office. This is so far from supporting oral tradition now that it rather teaches how precarious a mode of preserving revealed truth it was, depending, as it did, on the trustworthiness of each individual in the chain of succession; and how thankful we ought to be that God Himself has given the written Word, which is exempt from such risk.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 2:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 2:2

The things — The wholesome doctrine, 2 Timothy 1:13. Commit — Before thou leavest Ephesus. To faithful men, who will be able, after thou art gone, to teach others.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Timothy 2:2

(a) When many were there, who can bear witness of these things.
