Introduction and Titus 1.1-4
The apostle Paul wrote the book of Titus to a young pastor named Titus who was ministering on the Greek island of Crete. Crete has some Jews living in their towns, but it was a massive shift for most individuals in Crete who put their faith in Christ. Titus was ministering in this new and dynamic environment and this letter gives him guidance about how to faithfully navigate things. It can help us reflect on the core elements of our faith and how we should live it out in our own context.
