Titus. This letter was written to Paul’s fellow-worker Titus who had been left by Paul on the island of Crete (see Titus and 1 on Map 28).The letter was probably written from Corinth in Achaia (southern Greece) between 63 and 66 AD, shortly after Paul’s First Letter to Timothy (which contains some of the same advice). The letter was taken to Crete by Zenas and Apollos (see Titus ). From a consideration of the book of Titus, it is apparent that Paul visited Crete at some point following his first Roman imprisonment (Acts 28). Thus, a Greek convert of Paul’s (Galatians ; Titus ) had accompanied the apostle to the island and, in fact, was left there to assist in maturing the church, and to lend his opposition to. The apostle Paul left the Titus on the island of Crete to "set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city" (Titus ). Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean. Almost the entire population of Crete belongs to . The twelfth, and penultimate, of Paul's Epistles is Titus. Like II Timothy, it was written in Paul's later years, in approximately 64 AD. Paul had twice visited the Mediterranean island of Crete and, on his second visit, had left his trusted disciple Titus there, to continue ministering to the Cretians whilst he himself journeyed on to Macedonia.
Crete is a blend of three principal regions: Lowland Hills to the east, High Mountains to the west, and the central Messara Valley, a rich illuvial plain filled with orchards and fields of grain. There are five cities on the north coast, built on the remains of ancient Minoan foundations. The apostle Paul’s charge to Titus is “to set right what was left undone and, as I directed you, to appoint elders in every town” (). A literate audience would be familiar with the statement by the famous classical poet Homer, who spoke of “Crete of the hundred cities” (Homer, Iliad ), no doubt by way of poetic its extensive coastline, many of Crete’s cities. Testament that mentions Crete is the book of Acts. Among the people present in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost were Cretans (Acts ). And in Acts 27 we find the story of Paul’s eventful journey to Rome as a prisoner. After sail-ing along the south coast of Crete with some difficulty, the ship was caught in a violent storm and was shipwrecked. The book of Titus is a short guide to setting up order in the local churches of first-century Crete, but today it still gives us a theology of counter-cultural Christian living. Theme verse in Titus “For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city as I directed you .”.
