Last night, we discussed the analytical chart for Titus Segment 3. We discussed those times on the right side of the chart. As noted before, we typically use the right side of the chart for side studies (studies on words that add to the main study). Here is the chart.
Sometimes, there are words that could be used for the main study but that don’t flow through the particular chart being made. For instance, the word, ‘hope’ is a theme that definitely runs through all of Scripture and indeed through Titus. But, it is not, to me, to be emphasized in this chart. But, it can make for an interesting side study that adds to the main study.
In this segment, hope is referred to in the context of eternal life. Certainly important, but not in the main study. So,we can add to the right side of the chart. Often, you can find another scripture that embellishes the word (Scripture is its own best commentary), in this case, hope from 1 Peter 3:15 “but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; ”.
The subjects similar in scope to hope in this segment are subjection and good deeds. They are presented in the same vertical alignment on the chart. For, subjection, the scripture reference is Rom. 13:1. For good deeds the scripture reference is Matt. 25:34-40.
Also, in this segment are ‘things’. So those are presented on the right side in a different vertical alignment and a different color. There are authoritative things (2:15), trustworthy things (3:8), good and profitable things (3:8), and unprofitable and worthless things (3:9).
