The Book Of Titus

Welcome To The Study Of The Book Of Titus

Paul wrote this letter to Titus who was in Crete so that he might set straight what was unfinished, the appointing of elders. Another reason for Paul writing this letter was to encourage Titus to teach the saints about godly living and deal with all those false teachers. The Cretan’s economy consisted of making and exporting wine and olive oil but they were notorious for their untruthfulness and so this wasn’t a nice place to live.

Paul, in his letter to Titus, Paul appears to be dealing with the same issue and so, he encourages him to use similar guidelines for choosing church leaders in Crete.

Chapter By Chapter

The church in Crete had problems which included false teachers, and immoral behaviour from among these young converts, but we don’t know what was causing the delay in appointing elders. Paul had obviously started the process of appointing elders with Titus when he was in Crete, but Titus failed to finish what they started, maybe Titus needed more information to finish the task. Titus 1

Paul is instructed Titus to teach the older men, older women, young men, younger women, and slaves.

Just as Titus reminds everyone they need to show a good example of Christ-likeness to those around them, Titus too needs to show an example of Christ-likeness in his life. Titus 2

Paul reminds Titus to remind the saints about respecting those in authority and about how they are to live, in contrast to how they used to live before becoming Christians and he will instruct them on how to deal with those troublemakers, who are causing division within the church. Titus 3


"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers."
