St. Timothy (Timotheos)

Son of a Greek father and Jewish mother, St. Timothy was a follower of St. Paul ever since he had heard him preach. He accompanied St. Paul during his apostolic journeys, and was made the first bishop of Ephesus by him.

When he wanted to denounce the goddess Artemis, who was worshiped in Ephesus, the pagans stoned him in the year 97. St. Pauls letters to Timothy were written for him.
