The author of the article presents at first a literary specificity of the text 1Tm 6:11-16. Next within the exegesis he explains the encouragement towards the trully Christian life (v. 11-12) and the role that performs in it the motive of Christ's epiphany (v. 15-16) along with the solemn doxology in the honour of God (v. 15-16). The appeal to the truth about God who is the only Ruler, King and God, as well as to the epiphany of Christ should encourage the addressee of the letter 1Tm to build persistently in the name of Christ the Kingdom of God which He in His ultimate revelation will deliver for ever to God the Father.
