Timothy of Lystra

Timothy was born in c. AD 20 (3780–3781 in the Hebrew calendar) in the Roman province of Cappadocia. He was a Christian gentile from the city of Lystra, in the region of Lycaonia. Timothy was the son of a Greek pagan man and a Jewish woman named Eunice. His grandmother's name was Lois. 


Blessed are you, LORD our God, King of the universe, you called your servant Timothy to preach the gospel to the people of Macedonia, Greece, and Asia. Raise up in this and every land evangelists and heralds of your kingdom, that your church may proclaim the unsearchable riches of our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
