For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Romans 15:4

TITUS INTRODUCTION

A Bible Study - Commentary by Jim Melough

Copyright 2004 James Melough

While some question the Pauline authorship of this letter written possibly from Corinth in 62 or 63 A.D., there seems little valid reason for rejecting it, this present writer having found nothing convincing in the arguments against it. 

 

The one to whom it was addressed, Paulís young friend and fellow laborer, was Titus, a Greek, see Galatians 2:3, who was ministering amongst the churches on the island of Crete. 

 

I and II Timothy and this epistle to Titus constitute what are generally called the Pastoral Epistles.  It deals with such things as church polity, doctrine,, the qualifications and responsibilities of elders, false teaching, the conduct of young and old men and women.

[Titus 1]
