St Timothy was a first century Christian Bishop who is venerated as an apostle, saint, and martyr. St. Timothy was mentored by St. Paul and also became his traveling partner after Paul was so impressed with St. TimothyÆs knowledge of scripture. Together, St. Paul and St. Timothy traveled together through Phrygia, Galatia, Mysia, Troas, Philippi, Veria, and Corinth. When St. Paul was imprisoned it was St. Timothy who acted as PaulÆs ambassador. St. Paul had so much confidence in St. Timothy that he entrusted the welfare of all the Christian communities they had set up to him. This St. Timothy medal makes for a great gift for any occasion. Timothy can be taken as a confirmation name as well as being a popular birth name. Our St. Timothy medal comes on an 18 inch chain equipped with a clasp for easy and comfortable removal, as well as making it a one size fits all necklace.
