Titus 1-3

Note: The following suggested structure for the whole of Titus was found online at:

The format has been slightly adapted. A and A’ both have faith and grace as key words. In B, Titus is told he was left in Crete to set in order the things that are wanting and to ordain elders. In B’ Titus is told to come to Paul and to make sure nothing is wanting for Zenas and Apollos. C and C’ warns against false teachers. In D and D’ Titus is encouraged to teach sound doctrine. E and E’ is an exhortation to ensure our behaviour is such that others are not be able to speak evil of us, to be subordinate to rulers and to wait in hope for the appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ. These points all centre around the Lord Jesus ‘who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.’
