Al Collver stated:

I have been studying 1 Tim. Chapter 1 verse 18 is puzzling to me especially
the middle part of the verse:
        kata tas proagousas epi se profhteias ----> according to the prophecy
you from before hand
What is this prophecy St. Paul is referring to? Is there another way to
translate the text that doesn't have this problem?
Al Collver

Marion here: It seems that this could be translated as "for prophecies'
sake." He had the laying on of the hands of Paul to make him a prophet (II
Timothy 1:6).
