    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:23

    En cuanto a Tito, es mi compaero y coadjutor para con vosotros; o acerca de nuestros hermanos, que son apstoles de las Iglesias, y la gloria del Cristo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 8:23

    Verse 23. Whether any do inquire of Titus] Should it be asked, Who is this TITUS? I answer, he is my companion, and my fellow labourer in
    reference to you; chap. ii. 13; vii. 6, 7. Should any inquire, Who are these brethren, Luke and Apollos? I answer, They are apostoloi, apostles of the Churches, and intensely bent on promoting the glory of Christ.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. Whether any do inquire of Titus , etc..] The
    apostle here sums up the characters of each of the above persons; as for Titus, he says, he is my partner ; he had been his companion in his travels, a partner with him in preaching the Gospel, as well as in the troubles and persecutions he had met with; and was one with whom he had had sweet communion and fellowship: and fellow helper ; or worker, concerning you ; he had been a joint instrument with him, either in their conversion, or consolation, and correction; or for their edification and instruction, and setting things right, which had been out of order among them: or our brethren be inquired of ; if their characters are asked after, as well as Titus's; by whom are meant not his fellow apostles, but the two brethren who were sent along with Titus; what may be truly said of them is, they are the messengers of the churches ; they were chosen and sent forth by the churches, not only to preach the Gospel, but particularly to take care of the ministration to the poor saints. They were messengers appointed by the churches for this service, and were also appointed to the service of the churches; respect seems to be had to the public minister in the synagogues, who was called rwbx jyl , the messenger of the congregation, or church f72 ; whose business was to take care about the reading of the law and the prophets, to pray in public, and also to preach if there was no other; so we read also of yd tyb yjwl , the messengers of the sanhedrim; who were sent at the proper time to reap the sheaf of the first fruits, and of others who swore the high priest before the day of atonement f74 ; and of hwxm yjwl , the messengers of the commandment f75 ; who went to hear the exposition (of the traditions) and visit the head of the captivity: and the glory of Christ : meaning either that the churches were the glory of Christ, in whom he is glorified, where his glory is seen, and his presence enjoyed; or rather the messengers of them, on whom the image of Christ was stamped, who faithfully performed the work of Christ, in all things sought his glory and not their own; and in and by whom his glory was displayed, and held forth to others.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-24 - The
    apostle commends the brethren sent to collect their charity, tha it might be known who they were, and how safely they might be trusted It is the duty of all Christians to act prudently; to hinder, as far a we can, all unjust suspicions. It is needful, in the first place, to act uprightly in the sight of God, but things honest in the sight of men should also be attended to. A clear character, as well as a pur conscience, is requisite for usefulness. They brought glory to Chris as instruments, and had obtained honour from Christ to be counte faithful, and employed in his service. The good opinion others have of us, should be an argument with us to do well __________________________________________________________________
