Titus 1:5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

II. Pastoral Charge

Titus in Crete. [a]For this reason I left you in Crete so that you might set right what remains to be done and appoint presbyters in every town, as I directed you,

Footnotes:

  1. 1:5–9 This instruction on the selection and appointment of presbyters, substantially identical with that in 1 Tm 3:1–7 on a bishop (see note there), was aimed at strengthening the authority of Titus by apostolic mandate; cf. Ti 2:15. In Ti 1:5, 7 and Acts 20:17, 28, the terms episkopos and presbyteros (“bishop” and “presbyter”) refer to the same persons. Deacons are not mentioned in Titus. See also note on Phil 1:1.
