Acts 16:1-3

Timothy Joins Paul and Silas 1Paul went on also to Derbe and to Lystra, where there was a disciple named Timothy, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer; but his father was a Greek.2He was well spoken of by the believers in Lystra and Iconium.3Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him; and he took him and had him circumcised because of the Jews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was a Greek.
