Titus - Chapter Three

THINKING BIBLICALLY - Part 4           Page 5
V.12 (cont'd.)

** Who is going to take Titus' place in Crete?

Either Artemas or Tychicus. We can surmise that it turned out to be Artemas because of 2Timothy 4:12, when 1-2 years after writing Titus he sent Tychicus to Ephesus. In any case, both men were know to be co-workers and envoys of the apostle Paul. While this is the only mention of Artemas, we have ample record of Tychicus. cf. Colossians 4:7, Ephesians 6:21

V.13 ** The next two individuals were more than likely the carriers of this letter to Titus, how was he to treat them?

Diligently help them on their way so that nothing is lacking for them.

** Who were these two servants of God?

Zenas the lawyer (nomikos -learned in the law) may have been a teacher of God's Word or a scribe prior to his salvation.

Apollos was mighty in the Scriptures (Acts 18:24-28) and later had a big impact in Corinth for the cause of Christ (1Corinthians 3:6) Paul said, "I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth."

V.14 ** If we, as Christians, are continuing to learn to engage in good deeds by meeting the pressing needs of others, what will that accomplish?

We will not "be unfruitful". cf. John 15:5, 8 & 16

** Where could the Believers on Crete find a couple of people with pressing needs to help?

Paul had just given them Zenas and Apollos!

V.15 ** How does Paul strengthen the bonds of unity among all true believers as he ends his letter?

Everyone with me greets you.
Greet all true believers.
Grace be with you all.
