HENRY ALFORD
2 Timothy Commentary
The New Testament for English Readers

This version is similar to the one below but has the Greek text translated into English.

HENRY ALFORD
2 Timothy Commentary
The Greek Testament

WILLIAM BARCLAY
2 Timothy Commentary
Daily Study Bible

His word studies are often exceptional but see "The Enigmatic William Barclay" which discusses some of Barclay's unorthodox teachings. The upshot is "Be a Berean" (Acts 17:11-note)

JOHANN BENGEL
2 Timothy Commentary Notes
Gnomon of the New Testament

 H Spurgeon wrote that Bengel's NT commentary "is the Scholar's delight! Bengel condensed more matter into a line than can be extracted from pages of other writers."

John Wesley said "I know of no commentator on the Bible equal to Bengel" and referred to him as "The great light of the Christian world."

JOHANN BENGEL

The Critical English Testament

Similar to Alford's resource above but less Greek

JOSEPH BENSON
2 Timothy Commentary

JOHN HENRY BERNARD
2 Timothy Commentary

Rosscup - Earlier this was published in The Cambridge Greek Testament (Cambridge: University, 1922). It is one of the finest older works which grapples seriously with the Greek. Bernard was a fine scholar in his day.

JOHN CALVIN
2 Timothy Commentary

Rosscup -  One will not go wrong here, but find considerable insight on what verses mean. He will, however, be wise to go to several commentaries which offer even more on exegetical concerns, views, reasons, etc. while being enriched by this perceptive mind.

GUY KING
2 Timothy Commentary

Rosscup discusses both of King's expositional studies on the two letters to Timothy - "They are based on the English text and are outstanding popular treatments with many thoughts provocative for the preacher and the teacher. The very interesting writing style makes them ideal to recommend to laymen. King, a noted spiritual life speaker in his day, has given much rich food for thought here, presenting it simply yet in provocative words."

PAUL E KRETZMANN
2 Timothy Commentary

JOHN MACARTHUR
2 Timothy Sermons

Dr MacArthur's sermons function Like Verse by Verse Commentary

James Rosscup on MacArthur's Commentary -   One of the world’s most widely-known pastors gives articulate and rather detailed, basic expositions of verses with arresting illustrations. He deals with word meaning, flow of context, background, and sometimes mentions other views. The works are especially profitable for pastors, students, and lay readers aroused to read about main expositional issues and to grow.

HEINRICH MEYER

Commentary on 2 Timothy

Rosscup - This work, with that of Bernard among older efforts, deals with the Greek text in a thorough manner and offers the student much help. It is one of the more valuable commentaries on the Greek.

The first set of sermons is from the 2011 series on 2 Timothy

These sermons are from the 2014 series on 2 Timothy but they are very difficult to follow by chapter and verse
For example beginning at about 2 Timothy 2:10 below the sermons go on a "rabbit trail" and are not direct expositions of 2 Timothy

TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE
Updated and Expanded Version
R A Torrey
2 Timothy

Note: The best commentary on Scripture is Scripture (Compare Scripture with Scripture) and these cross references compiled by Torrey are the most comprehensive work of this type with over 500,000 entries. However, always check the context (Keep Context King) to make sure that the cross reference is referring to the same subject as the original Scripture. The Puritan writer Thomas Watson said it this way - "The Scripture is to be its own interpreter or rather the Spirit speaking in it; nothing can cut the diamond but the diamond; nothing can interpret Scripture but Scripture." See an example of the value of comparing Scripture with Scripture. See also Use of Cross-References

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
