Timotheus. Born of a Jewish mother, but of a Greek father. The name is Greek and means "one who fears God". Following his father, he was uncircumcised and, hence, regarded as a Greek instead of a Jew. Yet he had been taught the Scriptures from childhood (II Timothy 3:15) by his pious mother and grandmother (II Timothy 1:5). These, Eunice and Lois by name, were Christians also. Paul converted him (I Corinthians 4:17). Compare Galatians 4:19.
