Our new book study takes us to the New Testament letter of Titus. Titus is one of the pastoral epistles, written to a man (named Titus, obviously), whom the Apostle Paul had sent to the island of Crete to set the churches on the island in order. A lot had gone wrong in the churches on Crete, and Paul lays out God’s expectations for the pastors as well as for the members of those churches.
The epistle to Titus is also one of encouragement to a godly leader who was facing opposition from two opposing fronts. There were two camps of false teachers, one spreading a lascivious, immoral lifestyle, and the other a corrosive doctrine of legalism. Both of these teachings were wrong and destructive for the believers in Crete, and Paul encouraged Titus to set these false teachers straight. Paul’s protégé would need to show the Christians on the island that the Gospel of Jesus Christ was the truth that would give them the ability to do God’s work.
We also sideline temporarily to deconstruct some of the more common tropes of the CW’s superhero “Arrowverse” catalog of shows. The original Rip Van Winkle also makes a surprise guest appearance.
