There are three similar teachings in Titus 2. These teachings are addressed to older women, younger women, young men and slaves. Here is how they conclude:
…so that no one will malign the word of God. (Titus 2:5 NIV)
…so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. (Titus 2:8 NIV)
…so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive. (Titus 2:10 NIV)
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if…
.. …foolish men are silent;
¨ …no one will malign the word of God;
¨ …they will have nothing bad to say;
¨ …and the teaching about Jesus will be attractive?
