    VERSE (15) -
    Tit 1:13 2Ti 4:2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:15

    ¶ Esto habla y exhorta, y reprende con toda autoridad. Nadie te desprecie.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Titus 2:15

    Verse 15. These things speak] That is,
    teach; for lalei, speak, has the same meaning here as didaske, teach, which, as being synonymous, is actually the reading of the Codex Alexandrinus.

    And exhort] parakalei? Repeat them again and again, and urge them on their attention and consciences.

    And rebuke] elegce? Demonstrate the importance, utility, and necessity of them; and show them that God requires their obedience.

    With all authority.] meta pashv epitaghv? With all that authority with which thy office invests thee, and which thou hast received from God.

    Let no man despise thee.] That is: Act so that no person shall have any cause to despise thee, either for thy work, or the manner and spirit is which thou dost perform it.

    1. FEW portions of the New Testament excel this chapter. It may well form the creed, system of ethics, and text book of every Christian preacher. Does any man inquire what is the duty of a Gospel minister! Send him to the second chapter of the Epistle to Titus for a complete answer. There he will find what he is to believe, what he is to practice, and what he is to preach. Even his congregation is parcelled out to him. The old and the young of both sexes, and those who are in their employment, are considered to be the objects of his ministry; and a plan of teaching, in reference to those different descriptions of society, is laid down before him. He finds here the doctrine which he is to preach to them, the duties which he is required to inculcate, the motives by which his exhortations are to be strengthened, and the end which both he and his people should have invariably in view.

    2. The Godhead of Jesus Christ is here laid down in a most solemn and explicit manner: He is the great God our saviour, o megav qeov kai swthr? human language can go no higher, and the expressions are such, and are so placed, that it is impossible either to misunderstand or to misapply them.

    HE who is the great God, higher than the highest, is our saviour; he who is our saviour is the great God; but Jesus Christ is our saviour, and Jesus Christ is here stated to be the great God.

    3. The extent of human redemption is here also pointed out. The saving grace of this great God hath shone out upon every man; none has been passed by, none left uninfluenced, none without the first offer of life eternal, and a sufficiency of grace to qualify him for the state.

    4. The operation of Divine grace in preparing the soul for glory is next referred to. It cleanses us from all unrighteousness, it purifies us unto God, and makes us fervent and abundant in good works. This system is worthy of God, and is properly suited to the state and necessities of man. These are truths which must be preached, which are not preached enough, and which cannot be preached too often. Awake, pastors! and do not the work of the Lord carelessly. Awake, people! and believe to the saving of your souls. How shall he who is styled a minister of the Gospel, and who neither knows, feels, nor heartily inculcates these things, give an account in the great day, of himself, his calling, and his flock, to God? And when this Gospel is preached faithfully and zealously, how shall the people escape who neglect so great a salvation? Neglect, in such a case, is the highest contempt which man can offer to his Maker. Surely such conduct must expect judgment without mixture of mercy. Reader, lay this to heart.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. These things speak and exhort , etc.] Sound doctrine, the doctrine of grace, the doctrines of salvation and redemption by Christ, of peace, pardon, and cleansing by his blood; these speak out clearly, plainly, publicly, boldly, and faithfully: and the things which become sound doctrine; the duties of religion suitable to every age and sex, a denying of ungodliness and worldly lusts, a sober, righteous, and godly life and conversation, exhort unto; and encourage the saints to be zealous of good works, and comfort them with the expectation of the blessed hope, and glorious appearance of Christ. And rebuke with all authority ; such as imbibe errors and heresies, or indulge to vice and wickedness, with the authority both of Christ and his church, in the name of the one, and by the order and vote of the other, that the reproof may come with the greater weight; and in a grave and solemn manner, suitable to the dignity of the ministerial office and character, and with that sharpness and severity the offence requires. Let no man despise thee ; as negligent in the discharge of his office, or as doing it in a pusillanimous manner, or as behaving in his life and conversation unworthy of the character he bore, and so is a direction to himself; or else it may be considered as designed for the churches in Crete, and the professors of religion, and to be an instruction to them to value Titus, and treat him with respect, and not with contempt; which shows that this epistle was not written for Titus only, or for his own use, but for the service of others. The Ethiopic version reads, let no man deceive thee.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-15 - The
    doctrine of grace and salvation by the gospel, is for all ranks an conditions of men. It teaches to forsake sin; to have no more to d with it. An earthly, sensual conversation suits not a heavenly calling It teaches to make conscience of that which is good. We must look to God in Christ, as the object of our hope and worship. A gospe conversation must be a godly conversation. See our duty in a very fe words; denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, living soberly righteously, and godly, notwithstanding all snares, temptations corrupt examples, ill usage, and what remains of sin in the believer' heart, with all their hinderances. It teaches to look for the glorie of another world. At, and in, the glorious appearing of Christ, the blessed hope of Christians will be complete: To bring us to holines and happiness was the end of Christ's death. Jesus Christ, that grea God and our Saviour, who saves not only as God, much less as Man alone but as God-man, two natures in one person. He loved us, and gav himself for us; and what can we do less than love and give up ourselve to him! Redemption from sin and sanctification of the nature go together, and make a peculiar people unto God, free from guilt an condemnation, and purified by the Holy Spirit. All Scripture i profitable. Here is what will furnish for all parts of duty, and the right discharge of them. Let us inquire whether our whole dependence i placed upon that grace which saves the lost, pardons the guilty, an sanctifies the unclean. And the further we are removed from boasting of fancied good works, or trusting in them, so that we glory in Chris alone, the more zealous shall we be to abound in real good works __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:15 {With all
    authority} (meta pases epitages). See #1Co 7:6; 2Co 8:8. Assertion of authority is sometimes necessary. {Let no man despise thee} (medeis sou perifroneitw). Present active imperative in prohibition of periphrone", old verb, only here in N.T., to think around (on all sides). Literally, "let no man think around thee" (and so despise thee). In #1Ti 4:12 it is kataphroneit" (think down on), a stronger word of scorn, but this one implies the possibility of one making mental circles around one and so "out-thinking" him. The best way for the modern minister to command respect for his "authority" is to do thinking that will deserve it.
