Titus Outline
Titus 1:14

14 Not paying attention to Jewish 1amyths and the 2bcommandments of men who 3cturn away from the 4dtruth.


144 See notes 42 in 1 Tim. 2 and 155 in 1 Tim. 3. The truth here and the faith in the preceding verse prove that those who were dealt with here were not unbelievers. They were those in the church who had turned away from the truth concerning God's economy. It is possible that most of them were Jewish Christians who still held to their Jewish myths and traditions and thereby became a great disturbance to the church. They had to be stopped by the word of the truth according to the faith, that the order in the church might be maintained under the established eldership.
