Do Christians rightly divide the Word of truth by dividing Israel from the Church or by dividing history into different dispensations? What is dispensational premillennialism anyway, and where does it depart from God’s Word? What does Paul want Timothy to do with the Word of truth? Join Pastor Timothy Appel for some bonus podcast material on 2 Timothy 2:15.
To find out more about dispensational premillennialism, check out these two documents from the Commission on Theology and Church Relations of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod:

“The Word is Trustworthy” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron that goes through the three pastoral epistles: 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus. These three letters are named after their recipients, two young pastors in the Christian Church. St. Paul gives instruction to these two men concerning the doctrine and life of the congregations where they are given to serve. In these epistles, the Apostle teaches both pastors and congregations of all times and places that the sound doctrine from God’s Word is faithful to save sinners in Christ Jesus.
Sharper Iron, hosted by Rev. Timothy Appel, looks at the text of Holy Scripture both in its broad context and its narrow detail, all for the sake of proclaiming Christ crucified and risen for sinners. Two pastors engage with God’s Word to sharpen not only their own faith and knowledge, but the faith and knowledge of all who listen.

2 Timothy 2:15
15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,[b] a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
