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
in verses 2–7. “ABOVE REPROACH”— HE IS A MAN OF U NQUESTIONABLE
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.

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 ...
