Paul and Titus had worked together for many years, but in this letter Paul calls Titus to task. Left by Paul in Crete sometime between A.D. 63-67 to finish up the work they had started there, Titus has failed to complete the job. Paul writes this letter to give Titus a swift kick in the butt, telling him to complete the work quickly and to join Paul in western Greece as soon as possible. Listen as Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy finds Paul warning Titus to deal carefully with the people of Crete, for all Cretans, says Paul, are “liars, evil brutes, and lazy gluttons!”
