Titus Overview

This is a letter written to a church leader named Titus, a Gentile convert of Paul. It appears Paul and Titus took a mission trip to Crete around AD 62—64. Paul later left, with Titus remaining on the island as a church leader.

Paul sends this letter with Zenas and Apollos. It encourages Titus to select church leaders for local house churches, deal with offenders in the church and gives directions regarding certain church practices.

This short but amazing letter includes the

  • proper behavior of Christians, (I better sit down for this one)
  • submission to the government, (you better sit down for this one 😁)
  • proper treatment of all people,
  • and responses to false teachers

Most importantly he encourages good works.
