THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO TITUS

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

THIS Epistle of Paul to Titus is but short, though highly interesting, and we have much cause to bless God the Holy Ghost for it very clear marks of the Lord's inspiration are discoverable in it.

It is supposed by some to have been written from Rome; and others have thought that Paul wrote it from Ephesus. In either case the time must differ, though it generally bears the date of our Lord God 55.

The Person to whom Paul wrote it, is in several parts of the Apostle's other writings spoken of in very high terms of affection. Paul calls him Titus his own son, and his brother and partner and fellow helper; and as one who walked in the same spirit; and in the same steps. 2 Corinthians 12:18. see also Galatians 2:1-3; 2 Corinthians 8:23. So that he was evidently very dear to Paul.

The subject of the Epistle is generally concerning the blessed doctrines of the Gospel; and directions to Titus concerning the ministry. I beg the Reader to enter upon the perusal of it, on the knee of prayer, that the Almighty Author of his written Word, may lead the souls of his people by it, to the uncreated Word, and bless it in Jesus Christ.
