JOHANN BENGEL
Titus Commentary Notes
Gnomon of the New Testament

C H Spurgeon wrote that Bengel's NT commentary "is the Scholar's delight! Bengel condensed more matter into a line than can be extracted from pages of other writers."

F W Farrar writes that Bengel's "Gnomon is a mine of priceless gems. It contains sentence after sentence exquisitely terse and finished, and throbbing with spiritual light. Few writers have so admirably succeeded in expressing in a few words the inmost purpose of each of the Epistles. A generation crowded with writers whose theology abounded in mutual anathemas is yet redeemed from the charge of sterility which has produced such a theologian as Bengel. His work must continue to have its value so long as men can recognise the richest fruits of a noble intellect, a pure spirit, and a blameless life. "Lord Jesus, unto Thee I live, unto Thee I suffer, unto Thee I die; Thine I am, living or dying." These words were repeated to him in his last moments, and on hearing them he pointed with his right hand to his heart, and fell asleep in peace." (Amen!) (History of Interpretation: Eight Lectures Preached Before the University of Oxford in the Year 1885).

John Wesley said of Bengel "I know of no commentator on the Bible equal to Bengel" and referred to him as "The great light of the Christian world."

INTERNATIONAL CRITICAL COMMENTARY
Commentary on Titus
Walter Lock

D Edmond Hiebert -    Lock, Walter, "A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles." The International Critical Commentary. Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark (1924). Greek text. Lock leans to the conservative view but makes no pronouncements on the vexing critical problems. The notes on the Greek text are rather thin. Not up to the high standard of this series.

LANGE COMMENTARY 
Titus

D Edmond Hiebert -  Oosterzee, J. J. Van, "The Pastoral Letters," J. P. Lange's Commentary on the Holy Scriptures. Translated from the German.  (1863). The abundant material is in three sections: exegetical and critical; doctrinal and ethical; homiletical and practical.

J P LILLEY
TITUS EXPOSITORY COMMENTARY
(from "The Pastoral Epistles")

D Edmond Hiebert - A scholarly, conservative work (published in 1901) giving a comprehensive discussion of the Pastorals as a group as well as the individual epistles. A verse-by-verse exposition characterized by spiritual warmth and practical appeal.

JOHN MACARTHUR
Sermons on Titus

Cyril Barber - This homiletic exposition ranks as one of the best on Paul’s letter to Titus. It is thorough, practical, and vitally related to the needs of both people and the church. Pastors as well as lay people will appreciate the writer’s insights. Recommended. (The Minister's Library - Volume 3)

DON ANDERSON

RICH CATHERS

MARK COPELAND - Executable Outlines

GENE GETZ - principles from the respecitive passages

Cyril Barber on Getz's written work on Titus - Published first in 1978 by Zondervan. This practical study now takes its place alongside the author's other "Measure of" books. It is a pleasing series of meditations on Paul's letter to his youthful prot6# and edifies as well as instructs the reader. (The Minister's Library - Volume 2)

  • Titus 1:1-4; Trustworthy Coworkers: All spiritual leaders should have dedicated coworkers whom they can trust to fulfill difficult ministry assignments. Video
  • Titus 1:5-6; Interpreting Scripture Accurately: When using the qualities Paul outlined for selecting leaders, we must be sure to define and interpret each quality accurately. Video
  • Titus 1:7-9; Doctrine of Character: When using Paul's criteria for selecting spiritual leaders, we should allow a certain amount of freedom so as to be culturally relevant, but we should never compromise God's standards for maturity. Video
  • Titus 1:10-16; Bold Confrontation: Spiritual leaders should confront false teachers with patience and gentleness, but when there is no positive response, they are to take more direct and decisive action. Video
  • Titus 2:1-10; Knowing and Living: We must not assume that teaching believers biblical truths about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, salvation, and the second coming of Christ will cause them to live in God's will. Video
  • Titus 2:11-14;  Motivated by God's Grace: To help Christians live godly lives, we should motivate them by clearly teaching the wonder of God's saving grace. Video
  • Titus 2:15-3:7;  Conquering Evil with Good: Without compromising our own faith, we are to do everything we can to demonstrate Christlike qualities to unbelievers. Video
  • Titus 3:13-15; Ample Honorarium: As local church communities, we are to care for the economic needs of faithful men and women who have been appointed to serve us. Video

JOHN CEREGHIN

EASY ENGLISH

PATRICK FAIRBAIRN - The Pastoral Epistles , 1874

John Cereghin - What a good translation, full defense of the apostolic authorship of the epistles, fruitful comments and profitable dissertations, this volume is as complete a guide to the smaller epistles as one could desire. This old, standard treatment shows how pastors may use the Greek text to aid their exposition. A fine work in spite of its age. Uses Tischendorf's Greek text. Holds that Christ was a substitutionary ransom for sin (117); stresses the divine inspiration of Scripture (379); concludes with three appendixes on problem passages (405ff). Very thorough commentary on the Greek text. Defends Pauline authorship (1- 19); favors view that Jesus Christ is called "our great God and Saviour" (283); attacks the idea of baptismal regeneration (295); has a special appendix on the treatment of slavery in the New Testament (432). (Ref)

D Edmond Hiebert - Uses the Greek text of Tischendorf and the author's translation on facing pages. A voluminous (nearly 450 pages) exposition by a conservative Scottish theologian. Still worth consulting but devoid of the results of recent scholarship.

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
