Timothy Joins Paul and Silas

Acts 16

1 Then he came to a Derbe and Lystra. And behold, a certain disciple was there, b named Timothy, c the son of a certain Jewish woman who believed, but his father was Greek. 2 He was well spoken of by the brethren who were at Lystra and Iconium. 3 Paul wanted to have him go on with him. And he d took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in that region, for they all knew that his father was Greek. 4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered to them the e decrees to keep, f which were determined by the apostles and elders at Jerusalem. 5 g So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and increased in number daily.
