TITUS – AN OUTSTANDING APOSTLE OF THE LORD
By Herman Abrahams


INTRODUCTION
---------------------
Timothy is mentioned more often than Titus in the scriptures and Paul had a special love for Him. That’s probably why Timothy’s personality appears to be stand out more. Little is written or preached about Titus, however, here is ‘evidence that demands a verdict,’ that Titus indeed, by the very nature of his assignments and the way that he completed them, was an outstanding apostle.

‘Titus proved more effective in his ministry than did Timothy, and Paul sent him on more difficult missions. It was Titus’s mission to Crete that was the occasion for Paul to write the letter that we now have in our New Testament.’ (Richards, L. 1999. Every man in the Bible . T. Nelson: Nashville)


Key Scriptures:
--------------------
2Cor. 8:23 As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker among you; as for our brothers, they are representatives (Greek – ‘apostello’) of the churches and an honor to Christ.

Titus 1:5 The reason I left you in Crete was that you might straighten out what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you

Titus was an apostle. A Greek convert, He was entrusted by Paul with very important and difficult apostolic ministry. These included teaching and maintaining sound doctrine; appointing elders; accompanied Paul and Barnabus to the council meeting in Jerusalem to discuss the matter of circumcision of Gentile believers. He was also sent to Corinth to collect money from the churches for the needy among the believers in Jerusalem.

2Cor. 8:23 As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker

Although Titus is not mentioned in the Book of Acts, Paul’s letters reveal that he was the man of the hour at a number of key points in Paul’s life.


2. He Accompanied Paul And Barnabus To See The Other Apostles In Jerusalem.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gal 2:1 Fourteen years later I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also. Gal 2:2 I went in response to a revelation and set before them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles. But I did this privately to those who seemed to be leaders, for fear that I was running or had run my race in vain. Gal 2:3 Yet not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised,
