“Let the luster of thy life be a common school of instruction, a pattern of virtue to all” (Chrysostom)

In this lesson we look at Paul’s instructions to Titus for the teaching of older women and younger women, as well as for slaves/bondservants.

Considering the references to slaves, Charles Spurgeon speaks very strongly on what he felt Paul’s beliefs on slavery were:

“I do not think for a moment Paul believed that the practice of slavery ought to exist. He believed to the fullest extent that the great principles of Christianity would overthrow slavery anywhere, and the sooner they did so the better pleased would he be; but, for the time being, as it was the custom to have slaves, they must adorn the doctrine of God their Savior in the position in which they were.”
