Titus chapter 2 begins and ends with commands to TItus: declare ( λάλει ) what accords with sound teaching (v. 1); declare and exhort and rebuke ( λάλει καὶ παρακάλει καὶ ἔλεγχε ) (v. 15). In between these imperatival bookends, Paul spells out what sort of sound teaching he has in mind for the church. In vv. 2-10 he addresses different groups in the church (Older men, older women, young women, younger men) and discusses how they should live because of the fact that the grace of God has appeared, the grace that teaches us to renounce ungodliness and to live different lives (vv. 11-14). This passage is a great example of the dynamic of Christian theology- God's commands and imperatives, how we should live as believers, come as a response to the indicative reality of the gospel, what God himself has already done in Christ. The indicative gospel truths are the foundation for and motivation for living new lives, as the massively important word "for" in v. 11 makes clear.

Hi Brian,
I'm confused about the version on this page. It says ESV but in my ESV v. 7 begins a new sentence whereas here you have v. 7 as a subordinate clause of v. 6. As I try to understand the passage, v.7-8 appears to be an exhortation to Titus independent of the younger men. But as an subordinate clause it's clearly attached to the younger men. Schreiner also attaches it to the younger men, and uses an English translation that I haven't been able to identify. Unfortunately I don't know Greek well enough to understand whether v.7-8 is a coordinate or a subordinate clause.
Thanks for your help!
Brian
