The Epistle of Paul to Titus

There are many jewels hidden in the short epistle Paul wrote to Titus. The purpose of this book is to bring some
of them to light.

I call Titus a neglected book because some of the most valuable jewels in it are neglected by most preachers. They like to preach about the blessed hope in Titus 2:13 They also like to use Titus 3:5 to show that we are not
saved by works. However, Titus 2:4-5 are often neglected because they do not fit our modern culture.

The principles taught in this book will improve the quality of marriages, strengthen our churches, and help us to live our Christian lives on a higher plane.


About This Book

Many men, more capable than me, have written Bible commentaries. Their knowledge of the original languages of the Scriptures helped them understand the meaning of passages. So, why would I endeavor to write another on the epistle of Paul to Titus? It is not because others have not done a good job in their commentaries. It is because I believe that this book has been severely neglected by the preachers of our day.

Preachers often refer to Titus Chapter Three when they want to support the doctrine of salvation without works.

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; (Titus 3:5)

They refer to Chapter Two when teaching about Christ’s return.

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; (Titus 2:13)

These are important passages, and there are a few other passages that are often referred to, but there are also some that are neglected. I have heard many messages from Titus Chapter Two and rarely do they deal in any depth with verses four and five. There are too many issues covered in these two verses that don’t fit well with our modern culture.

There are other jewels found in this short epistle that I have never heard preached from the pulpits or taught in Sunday School. For example, did you know that all three chapters tell us that God is our Saviour and that Jesus is our Saviour? This is important because of what the LORD (Jehovah) said through Isaiah.

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. (Isaiah 43:11)

This is a strong argument for the deity of Christ that is seldom used. If there is no Saviour aside from Jehovah, and if Jesus Christ is our Saviour, the two must be the same.

It is my hope that this book will excite preachers and Sunday School teachers to use this book more in their preaching and teaching.

About The Author

Pierre was saved at the age of 17. After high school, he entered the US Army, and in 10 years rose from the rank of private to captain. At that time the Lord dealt with him about leaving the Army. This is when God called him into the ministry. He has been a missionary, a pastor, and an evangelist. One thing that has been consistent from the very beginning is his love for an accurate interpretation and exposition of the Scriptures.
