1:10 They of the circumcision - The Jewish converts.
Tit 1:10 There are many disorderly and vain talkers. The last sentence suggests to Paul to speak of the Cretan errorists. The allusions to the false teachers show that the Epistle belongs to the closing years of the apostle's life. And deceivers, specially of the circumcision. Jews, perhaps Judaizing Christians who had so troubled the Gentile churches. See the Galatian letter.
Rick's comment on 2014-02-18 17:55:41:
This verse is telling us to hold steadfast as we represent Christ Those of the circumcision would nowadays represent the Atheist or non Christian looking to poke holes in those of the Christian faith We have to stay sober so we can direct people to Jesus instead of driving them away from Jesus Believe me I am trying hard to remove the hypocricies in my life Those who stand up for Jesus become a target The ends justify the means
