Introduction

January 24, 2011 Leave a comment

In the first three verses of Titus, Paul explains that his purpose is to “further the faith of God’s elect.”

Furthering faith seems like a noble cause.  But why only God’s elect?  Don’t people who still need God’s grace need this message just as much?

Outline of Titus 1

  1. Paul introduces himself
  2. How to be a good elder
  3. Silencing the rebellious

It’s interesting to me how specific Paul’s description is of the qualifications of an elder, how generic his criticism of the circumcision group and other rebels.  It appears that a reader could end up interpreting the latter part of this chapter to meet his or her own preconceived notions.  I will read some commentaries on verses 10-16 to see if there’s consensus or confusion on this particular passage.

Paul focuses on interpersonal relationships in this last chapter.

I look forward to going though a verse-by-verse study of Titus over the next three weeks.

Titus 1 Commentary

January 19, 2011 Leave a comment

In this commentary, the authors note that Titus is responsible for parenting a church out of infancy and into a more mature stage of development.

That’s an interesting concept, imagining an organization like a church “growing up.”
