Date Written: AD 65
Key People: Paul, Titus
Summary: Paul wrote this letter to Titus, who was ministering on the island of Crete, because he had heard that false teachers were deceiving the church there. Paul’s advice to Titus was to remain strong in the faith and to rebuke those who were listening to the lies being spread and encourage them to live according to the sound doctrine of Scripture. Paul also addressed the church and exhorted them to live godly lives as they waited for the hope and promise of eternity with Jesus Christ. All Christians are to renounce ungodliness and to live lives that exhibit faith and hope in the Savior, Jesus Christ.
About Jesus: Jesus came to save sinners—not by works—but by grace through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.
