Books of the Bible


Paul's letter to TitusThe book of Titus was written by the Apostle Paul (who wrote about half of the New Testament). It’s a letter, or epistle, to the pastor Titus. It, along with First Timothy and Second Timothy are often called Paul’s pastoral letters, because their focus is on instructing young ministers.

As such, they are often considered to be church manuals, more than personal letters. However, since all followers of Jesus are called to minister to others, these three books are applicable to church members everywhere.

Paul’s letter to Titus, while partly a manual for church administration, is a charming and affectionate letter. In it, Paul provides guidance and instruction for effective living as a follower of Jesus.
