Summary of Titus

The book of Titus is an Epistle written from Paul to Titus regarding policies of the Church of Jesus Christ.

In Chapter 1: Paul explains that eternal life was “…promised before the world began;” (Titus 1:2) Paul lays out the roles, duties and responsibilities of the Bishop in the Church.

In Chapters 2-3: Paul explains that as members of the Church of Jesus Christ, the Saints should;  teach their children to be sober, to love their spouse and their own children. Paul urges members to be obedient, have a pattern of good works, and to be sincere. Paul then explains the Baptismal Covenant and the duties and responsibilities members of the Church have after they are baptized. He explains that the Saints are “…subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready for every good work. To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men.” (Titus 3: 1-2) Paul goes on to explain that members of the Church are not perfect, but should strive to be perfect every day.
