Conform to the gospel (1 Tim. 1:11)

“They must conform

To the glorious gospel

Of the blessed God,

Who has entrusted it

To me.”

κατὰ τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τῆς δόξης τοῦ μακαρίου Θεοῦ, ὃ ἐπιστεύθην ἐγώ.

Paul said, “They must conform to the glorious gospel (κατὰ τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τῆς δόξης) of the blessed God (τοῦ μακαρίου Θεοῦ), who has entrusted it to me (ὃ ἐπιστεύθην ἐγώ).”  Paul indicated that the blessed happy God had entrusted him with the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.  Thus, they had to conform to this good news gospel that Paul had given them.  Timothy had to have sound teaching there in Ephesus.  Do you consider the gospel glorious?
