How can strong, evangelistic churches be established in a culture that is anything but Christian? This was the challenge that Titus faced on the island of Crete. In instructing Titus, Paul focused on the importance of qualified church leadership, godly conduct within the church, and a Christ-honoring testimony before the world. Join John MacArthur in Titus as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.
The indispensable MacArthur Commentary on the New Testament emphasizes both an explanation and application of Scripture by an examination of the text that seeks to illuminate broad doctrinal themes in the service of God's people. Each passage is related to other passages of Scripture dealing with similar themes, and when necessary draws in linguistic questions to further support adequate exposition of the text-though these are never technical.
Sharp, clear outlines are provided for each section of the biblical book and guide the commentary discussion throughout each volume in the series. Commentary sections comprise periscopes of Scripture (e.g., 2 Timothy 1.1-5) and key words/phrases are highlighted in bold.
The MacArthur New Testament Commentary comes from the experience, insight, and wisdom of one of the most trusted ministry leaders and Bible teachers of our day. Each volume was written to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible, dealing thoroughly with every key phrase and word in the Bible without being unduly technical. This series helps provide a better, fuller, and richer understanding of God's word while challenging all readers-no matter what their expertise-to grow in a vibrant, personal spiritual walk.

This commentary, part of a set from noted Bible scholar John MacArthur, takes readers on a journey through Titus to discover what lies beneath the surface, focusing on meaning and context, and then reflecting on the explored passage or concept. "They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him." - Titus 1:16 Somewhere along the line we've lost the true meaning of being a Christian. In the third of the pastoral epistles, Paul reminds Titus that faith and actions go hand in hand. He emphasizes the importance of worthy conduct and instructs the church to teach sound Christian doctrine in the face of prevailing heresy. Join John MacArthur as he studies God's Word in order to understand and apply the instructions given in the book of Titus.
