New Defender's Study Bible Notes

1:7 defence. “Defence” is the Greek apologia, a legal term referring to a formal defense as in a courtroom. Many modern evangelicals think the gospel does not need to be defended—just preached. Paul and Timothy knew better. The gospel was under attack in their day, and is even more so now, and it does need a sound defense. See also Philippians 1:17.
