The Bible Teacher’s Guide Titus: Becoming Zealous For Good Works

Crete was a difficult ministry. Culturally, the people were known for being lazy, deceptive, and combative (Tit 1:12). Though difficult, many churches there needed to be discipled and built up. Consequently, Paul visited to minister to the Cretans and eventually left Titus there to continue the work.

In Paul’s letter to Titus, he encourages his son in the faith and gives him various instructions. Titus was to select elders in all the churches to help train the believers, teach them sound doctrine, and protect them from false teaching (Tit 1:9-10). In addition, Paul emphasized that the Cretans needed to be zealous to do good works. Good works are mentioned six times in the epistle and is its major theme (Tit 1:16; 2:7, 14; 3:1, 8, 14). The Cretans needed to know that God not only saved them from sin and judgment but to a relationship with him and good works. Titus 2:14 says this about Christ, “Hegave himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are truly his,who are eager to do good.” Certainly, this is true of us as believers as well. As we consider this epistle, may the Lord draw us to himself, purify us, and inspire us to do good works which benefit all people (Tit 3:8). Let’s study Titus together with The Bible Teacher’s Guide.

"The Bible Teacher’s Guide … will help any teacher study and get a better background for his/her Bible lessons. In addition, it will give direction and scope to teaching of the Word of God. Praise God for this contemporary introduction to the Word of God."
