The Letter to Titus

6m | Mar 23, 2022

The letter to Titus is one of the texts of the New Testament, written by Paul of Tarsus and addressed to his disciple Titus.

Titus was a Greek, Paul's companion and co-worker (Galatians 2:1-3, Second Letter to the Corinthians 8:23; perhaps he was baptized by Paul himself, who therefore calls him a true son according to the common faith (1:4). He was soon to stand out among the most zealous and open-minded Christians, if the Apostle brought him, together with Barnabas, to the Council of Jerusalem (49-50 AD), where the line of freedom from the Mosaic law advocated by Paul prevailed.

Titus appears in the letter as the person responsible for the Christian community of Crete. We do not know precisely when Paul evangelized the island of Crete. Acts 27:8-9 speaks of the apostle's stay in Crete for a considerable time, on the occasion of his journey to Rome after the appeal to Caesar; it could be that he already preached the Gospel then. Certainly, however, St. Paul was also in Crete on another occasion, namely when he left Titus there to complete the work he had begun: this should have happened after his liberation from the first Roman captivity (64 AD).

The subject of the epistle is sound doctrine and the good works that follow from it.
