He, however, refused to subject him to the rite of circumcision, though, as some have inferred, he was strongly urged so to do. Galatians 2:3-5. Titus was the companion of Paul in many of his trials and missionary tours, 2 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 8:16; 2 Corinthians 8:23, and was entrusted with several important commissions. 2 Corinthians 12:18; 2 Timothy 4:10; Titus 1:5.

Epistle of Paul to, was designed to instruct Titus in the right discharge of his ministerial offices in Crete, a difficult field, owing to the character of the inhabitants, who were noted for lying, idleness, and gluttony. Titus 1:12. The Epistle was probably written from Asia Minor in the year 65, when Paul was on his way to Nicopolis.
