2 Timothy 3
10 ¶  But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,
11  persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra — what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me.

Timothy well knew and carefully followed Paul’s:

·        Doctrine   
·        Manner of Life
·        Purpose
·        Faith
·        Longsuffering
·        Love
·        Perseverance
·        Persecutions
·        Afflictions


Acts 13
14 ¶  But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day and sat down.

44  On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God.
45  But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy; and contradicting and blaspheming, they opposed the things spoken by Paul.
46 … we turn to the Gentiles.
47  "For so the Lord has commanded us: ’I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, That you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.’"

50  But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, raised up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region.
51  But they shook off the dust from their feet against them, and came to Iconium.


Acts 14
1 ¶  Now it happened in Iconium that they went together to the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a great multitude both of the Jews and of the Greeks believed.
2  But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren.

4  But the multitude of the city was divided: part sided with the Jews, and part with the apostles.
5  And when a violent attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to abuse and stone them,
6  they became aware of it and fled to Lystra …


Acts 14
8 ¶  And in Lystra …

17  "Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness."
18  And with these sayings they could scarcely restrain the multitudes from sacrificing to them.

19 ¶  Then Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there; and having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead.

20  However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.


2 Timothy 3
11 … And out of them all the Lord delivered me.

12  Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

 14  But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
