Sermon Archives: Titus Sermons

These are the sermons preached in 2011 on the book of Titus. Who was Titus? Why is his greek status so important? What do we do with Israel and the church? How do we live in light of a greek man succeeding Paul? These are some of the questions that we work through in the series.

May 30, 2011

Paul concludes the letter to Titus with the normal greeting, and instructions. How can these instructions be beneficial and edifying for us today? Why do we care what Paul told Titus?
