Brent Meschuk RS 010-1 April 2, 2008 Titus Book Chart Book: Titus Part A Authorship : Historians believe that the letter was most likely written by someone who was enthralled with Paul’s teachings and wanted to extend his teachings to Titus. This letter is a Pastoral Letter of Paul’s. (Green, Thompson, Actemeier) Date and Place : Due to the unspecific authorship of Titus, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly when and where Titus was written. From the text it is apparent that the letter was written after Paul was released from prison in 61 CE. Historical Context : Paul was nearing the end of his life, and knew he could possibly be executed. His entire goal was to continue the gospel, and should he be gone he would need someone who could keep the gospel going with some form of organization. It seems Titus was written as an appeal to take on the gospel after he was gone.
