Titus was a young pastor on the island of Crete. Paul mentored him as he did Timothy. Some key words in this letter are: “good deeds”, used six times; “grace” (1:1, 4, 13; 2:10, 13 and 3:15). Chapter two is a very important passage dealing with relationships within the church.
Here is an outline of Titus:
I. Salutation and opening greetings (1:1-4)
II. Ordination of elders in the church (1:5-9)
III. Offenders in the church (1:10-16)
IV. Operation in the church (2:1-3:11)
V. Final instructions and greetings (3:12-15)
