TITUS

(ti' tuhss) Gentile companion of Paul (Galatians 2:3) and recipient of the New Testament letter bearing his name.

Titus may have been converted by Paul who called him “my true son in our common faith” (Titus 1:4 NIV). As one of Paul's early associates, Titus accompanied the apostle and Barnabas to Jerusalem (Galatians 2:1), probably on the famine relief visit (Acts 11:28-30).

Though Acts does not mention Titus, he was quite involved in Paul's missionary activities as shown in the Pauline letters. He was evidently known to the Galatians (Galatians 2:1,Galatians 2:3), possibly from the first missionary journey to that region. Titus also seems to have been a very capable person, called by Paul “my partner and fellow worker” (2 Corinthians 8:23 NIV). He was entrusted with the delicate task of delivering Paul's severe letter (2 Corinthians 2:1-4) to Corinth and correcting problems within the church there (2 Corinthians 7:13-15). Titus' genuine concern for and evenhanded dealing with the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 8:16-17; 2 Corinthians 12:18) no doubt contributed to his success which he reported in person to Paul, anxiously awaiting word in Macedonia (2 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Corinthians 7:5-6,2 Corinthians 7:13-15). Paul responded by writing 2 Corinthians which Titus probably delivered (2 Corinthians 8:6,2 Corinthians 8:16-18,2 Corinthians 8:23)

Paul apparently was released after his first Roman imprisonment and made additional journeys, unrecorded in Acts. One of these took him and Titus to Crete, where Titus remained behind to oversee and administer the church (Titus 1:5). It was to Crete that Paul wrote his letter, asking Titus to join him in Nicopolis on the west coast of Greece (Titus 3:12). Following Paul's subsequent reimprisonment, Titus was sent to Dalmatia (2 Timothy 4:10). According to church tradition, Titus was the first bishop of Crete. See Crete.
