About Paul's letter to Titus
Paul was a great Christian teacher. God sent him to many countries to tell the people about Jesus Christ. Titus was a young man who had travelled with Paul. He had been to Jerusalem with Paul. See Galatians 2:1-3. Some time after that, Paul sent Titus to Corinth city. There were serious problems among the Christians at Corinth. Paul sent Titus there to help them. See 2 Corinthians 7:5-16; 8:16-24.
We think that Paul wrote this letter at some time between
The Christians who lived on Crete had believed Christ for only a short time. They needed good leaders. So, in this letter, Paul tells Titus what kind of people he should choose as leaders.
Also, there were some false teachers there. So, Paul tells Titus that he must not let the Christians believe those false teachers. Titus must teach only the true Christian message. He must tell the Christians to do good things that make God happy.
