How early were the Scriptures taught to Timothy?

Answer

And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto
salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus." 2 Tim. 3:15.
NOTE - Timothy's father was a Greek, and his mother a Jewess. From a child he had been taught
the Scriptures. The faith of his mother and of his grandmother in the Word of God had early been
implanted in him through their faithful instruction. 2 Tim. 1:5. The piety which he saw in his home life had
a moulding influence upon his own life. This with his knowledge of the Scriptures, qualified him to bear
responsibilities and to render faithful service later in the cause of Christ. His home instructors had cooperated with God in preparing him for a life of usefulness. Thus it should be in every home.
