Item description for Titus: New Testament Commentary (Macarthur New Testament Commentary Serie) by John F. MacArthur, Jr....
Overview This New Testament commentary series reflects this objective of explaining and applying Scripture. The dominant thrust of John Mac Arthur Jr.'s ministry is to help make God's living Word alive to His people. Titus - Paul's authorship of this letter has never been seriously questioned, nor has the identity of Titus. It seems probable that Titus came into Paul's life during the apostle's second missionary journey, although for some reason Luke makes no mention of him in the book of Acts. Because Titus has been associated with Paul for many years before beginning his ministry on Crete, it is unlikely that any of the doctrines and standards mentioned in this epistle were new to him. The duty to build churches in Crete that could effectively evangelize the island demonstrates Titus's commitment to reach the unconverted with the gospel.
Publishers Description This commentary, part of a set from noted Bible scholar John MacArthur, takes readers on a journey through Titus to discover what lies beneath the surface, focusing on meaning and context, and then reflecting on the explored passage or concept. "They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him." - Titus 1:16 Somewhere along the line we've lost the true meaning of being a Christian. In the third of the pastoral epistles, Paul reminds Titus that faith and actions go hand in hand. He emphasizes the importance of worthy conduct and instructs the church to teach sound Christian doctrine in the face of prevailing heresy. Join John MacArthur as he studies God's Word in order to understand and apply the instructions given in the book of Titus.
