Titus 2

Verses 1-15

Three Charges - The underlying theme of the epistle of Titus is church order. Paul gives Titus several charges regarding how to set the churches of Crete in biblical order. These charges will emphasize the setting of the church in order by appointing men with a pure heart as church leaders (Titus 1:5-16), teaching sound doctrine to give them with a sound mind (Titus 2:1-15), and establishing godly conduct in their actions (Titus 3:1-7). In Titus 3:8-11 Paul summarizes his three charges to Titus (Titus 3:8) and instructs him on how to deal with those who oppose the things of God.

Outline Here is a proposed outline:

1. First Charge: Appoint Elders: Pure Hearts Titus 1:5-16

2. Second Charge: Speak Sound Doctrine Sound Minds Titus 2:1-15

3. Third Charge: Establish Godly Conduct Titus 3:1-7
