Titus Overview - 22nd May 2022

This Bible Study will be a bit different from our normal Bible Study Guides because it covers an entire book of the Bible instead of a chapter or a few verses. If you have time, it may be a great help to read back over the entire book and see what things you didn't notice the first time around. It only takes about 7 minutes to read the entire book of Titus out loud.
