Fee's ability in writing commentaries is as obvious during this quantity because it used to be in his magisterial quantity on 1 Corinthians."

The meaning of in the faith is debated (see disc. on v. 5 for the word faith in the PE). There is no article in the Greek text. Since elsewhere in these letters, where Paul unambiguously means to say "the faith;' he always uses the article, it is much more likely that in faith is meant here. That is, Paul is referring either to Timothy's own faith (by his having faith in Christ he thereby also became Paul's son) or to the sphere of his relationship with Paul (in his faith[fulness] to Christ he is a true, faithful son).
J. Karris, p. 3). But such a position seems to abuse the internal evidence rather severely. lt is difficult to imagine the psychology of an author who would give so many internal clues as to the order in which the letters were to be read and then not care at all that they be read in that order. This is especially true of 1 and 2 Timothy. If, for example, the pseudonymous author intended them tobe read in the order 2 Timothy-1 Timothy, why were they not numbered that way? In this case the internal evidence is decisive.
How deeply entrenched this point of view is came home forcefully to me when a student who had sat through my course began his term paper with this sentence: "The Pastoral Epistles are not private letters but rather are for the regulation of ecclesiastical discipline"! 16. Interestingly, this datum is almost totally disregarded by scholarship-on both sides of the question of authorship. lt seems to have been overlooked by conservative scholars because of their view of the purpose of these letters-to establish church order-and this passage in Acts did not seem to fit that view.
