Anepileptos, “Above Reproach” This term describes a man who is free from any
serious character blights, is respected by those who know him, and is widely
known to live a godly life. Chrysostom notes, “Every virtue is implied in this word.”
11 William Mounce argues that “above reproach” is really the fountain from which
all the others flow: “the first stands as the title over all these qualities: the overseer
must be above reproach; all that follows spells out what this entails.”12 The most

But a church should never place a man into church leadership based on his
desire alone. The church is responsible to affirm a man's qualifications for
ministry by measuring him against God's standard for leadership, as delineated
CHARACTER Paul begins, “An overseer . . . must be above reproach” (v. 2). The
little word translated “must” (dei) emphasizes an absolute necessity: being above
reproach is an ...

to affirm a man's qualifications for ministry by measuring him against God's
standard for leadership as delineated in verses 2–7. ABOVE REPROACH A
fundamental, universal requirement for an overseer is that he “must be above
reproach” (v. 2). It is an absolute necessity. The Greek text indicates that being
above reproach is the man's present state—he has sustained a reputation for
being irreproachable. There's nothing to accuse him of. It doesn't refer to sins he
committed before he ...

The I in as I directed is emphatic; the clause looks forward to the following verse
and impresses on Titus that his elders must be the kind of men Paul approves.
The list of qualifications, positive and negative, closely resembles that prescribed
for overseers in i Tim. iii. 2-7. The elders must be men who are above reproach (
the singular 6 is used in the original, the construction being 'if anyone is above
reproach ...'). That is, they should offer no loophole for criticism: see on 1 Tim. iii.
2; 7.

In Proverbs 26:17, what is a man who meddles in someone else's quarrel
compared to? 16. There are some strong words recorded in Proverbs 25:17.
What do you think this means? C. Work with your hands "Now we ask you,
brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the
Lord and who admonish you." I Thessalonians 5:12 God sets the first example of
working in the Bible, during Creation: "By the seventh day God had finished the
work he had been ...

Therefore an overseer must be above reproach. 1 TIMOTHY 3:1–2 The nobility of
the pastoral office demands a correspondingly noble character. Churches must
therefore seek men whose inner and outer lives are sewn together by integrity
and Christlikeness. Paul lists “above reproach” as the second characteristic an
elder must possess. “Above reproach” serves as an umbrella for all the other
requirements that follow. A man must be blameless in his outward conduct,
upright and ...

7 For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach. What I believe is
going on in this text is that after Paul states that this man must be above reproach,
then the next qualifications are descriptive of what it means to be blameless. So
after the first mention of being above reproach, Paul lays out what this means in
the family life of the man. In verse 7 and following the second use of “above
reproach,” Paul lays out the character of the man himself. Then in verse 9, Paul
tells us ...

That's true. But in Israel, the king was not in “the ministry.” He was a politician.The
spiritual offices were prophet and priest. David didn't lose his office because he
didn't have a spiritual office. But apparently he did lose his razor-sharp edge of
credibility, and until his dying day he never completely got it back. One look at his
family will underscore that. A spiritual leader is to be a man above reproach (1
Timothy 3:2). Nelson Rockefeller once said, “My grandfather never broke any
laws, ...

(The Reformed Pastor [Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1979], 63, 67-68) Anepil
ēmptos (above reproach) means “not able to be held.” The man who is above
reproach cannot be arrested and held as if he were a criminal; there is nothing for
which to accuse him. In Titus 1:6, the same idea of being above reproach is
conveyed, but a different term (anengklōtos—“unreprovable”) is used. The
present participle einai (be) indicates he is in a present state of being above
reproach. Obviously ...
