Epistle of Paul to Titus

Titus was a Greek. He was the first bishop of the church of the Cretians.
Titus accompanied Paul and Barnabas to the apostolic council in Jerusalem to discuss the issue of circumcision, which certain Jewish converts were insisting was necessary for the Gentiles according to the law of Moses (Galatians 2:1; Acts 15:2).
Chapter 1
Paul introduces himself as an apostle of the Jesus Christ. He greets Titus with grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul sets forth the qualifications for the office of bishop. Bishops must be "sober, just, holy and temperate."
Paul warns against those that teach for "filthy lucre's sake." He also warns against "Jewish Fables."
Chapter 2

Paul teaches
[11] For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
[12] Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
[13] Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
[14] Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
 Chapter 3
Paul writes
[3] For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
[4] But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
[5] Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
[6] Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
[7] That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life
