Text Commentary side-by-side

2, 1–10 :

One of Titus’ main tasks in Crete is to become acquainted with the character of the Cretans and thereby learn to cope with its deficiencies (see 1, 12 ). The counsel is not only for Titus himself but for various classes of people with whom he must deal: older men and women ( 2–4 ), younger women and men ( 4–7 ), and slaves ( 9–10 ); cf Eph 6, 1–9; Col 3, 18–4, 1 .

2, 11–15 :

Underlying the admonitions for moral improvement in 1–10 as the moving force is the constant appeal to God's revelation of salvation in Christ, with its demand for transformation of life.

2, 13 :

The blessed hope, the appearance: literally, “the blessed hope and appearance,” but the use of a single article in Greek strongly suggests an epexegetical, i.e., explanatory sense. Of the great God and of our savior Jesus Christ: another possible translation is “of our great God and savior Jesus Christ.”
