Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 1:14

_ _ Jewish fables — (See on 1 Timothy 1:4; see on 1 Timothy 4:7; see on 2 Timothy 4:4). These formed the transition stage to subsequent Gnosticism; as yet the error was but profitless, and not tending to godliness, rather than openly opposed to the faith.

_ _ commandments of men — as to ascetic abstinence (Titus 1:15; Mark 7:7-9; Colossians 2:16, Colossians 2:20-23; 1 Timothy 4:3).

_ _ that turn from the truth — whose characteristic is that they turn away from the truth (2 Timothy 4:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Titus 1:6-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Titus 1:14

Commandments of men — The Jewish or other teachers, whoever they were that turned from the truth.
