Brief Summary:

The Letter to Titus was most probably written during Paul’s trip to Rome (Acts 27).

He was not as close as Timothy was to Paul, but still, Titus played a crucial role in Paul’s ministry, as well as in Crete. Titus was not mentioned in the book of Acts, but he was a part of Paul’s inner circle, and Paul referred to him in the letter to 2nd Corinthians.

Titus was referred by Paul as a “brother” (2 Cor. 2:13), and as a “partner” and “coworker” in 2 Cor. 8:23. Even though Titus was not mentioned in the book of Acts, he was referred repeatedly in 2 Corinthians (2 Cor. 2:12-13; 7:5-6; 8:6).

Just as Timothy, Titus was left in Crete (1:5 – “The reason I left you in Crete was to set right what was left undone and, as I directed you, to appoint elders in every town”) for unfinished work, appointing elders in every town. After receiving this letter, and doing the task assigned, Titus was to go to Paul (3:12 – “When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, make every effort to come to me in Nicopolis because I have decided to spend the winter there”).
