A biblical journey through the epistles

12 – Titus

Titus

Thank you for visiting our epistle page for the Pauline epistle of Titus. Our prayer and hope is that you will be blessed by the bible studies below and that they will help you in your Christian walk.

The letter is authored by the apostle Paul to Titus who worked with Paul in the church in Crete. We learn this is Titus 1:5 when Titus stayed behind to work with the churches and Paul continued on his journey. This is called a Pastoral Epistle (along with 1st Timothy and 2nd Timothy) and gives many doctrines that we still use in both church structure and also for choosing leaders in the church. For other bible studies on other epistles please see our main epistle page.

Paul was looking to instruct and encourage Titus in this letter and according to the custom of Paul’s letters he mentions himself and then the recipient Paul sent this letter with Zenas and Apollos (Titus 3:13) and encourages Titus by sending missionaries to support him in his mission to the Cretans.

Although this letter is written and addressed to Titus it was also meant for public address and will in most likelihood be read to the whole island of Crete and beyond. Paul informs in his opening who he was, what he stood for and what authority he was writing with, Paul was dealing with issues that may have been corrective in nature so the letter may not have been received universally well by those who were in error.

Below is a list of our Bible studies, please click on the hyperlinks in order to see the articles that deal with these issues, for your convenience I have also placed links in the comments section for these and other useful articles that link back to this page. (As the articles become live the hyperlinks will become active)

When the writers of the bible separated the books into chapters and verses to help indexing and finding verses, this book was split into 3 chapters, in many cases new chapters do not contain new thoughts and you will see bible studies cross over chapter lines.
