Agnostic “Bible scholar” Bart D. Ehrman maintains that the more honest term is “forgery.” The book suggests that 11 or more books out of the 27 books of the Christian New Testament canon were written as forgeries. Is 2 Timothy a forgery?
In the New Testament, the Second Epistle of Paul to Timothy, usually referred to simply as Second Timothy and often written 2 Timothy or II Timothy, is one of the three pastoral epistles traditionally attributed to Paul the Apostle, along with First Timothy and Titus. It was written by the apostle Paul 65 C.E. in Rome.
