Was Titus a bishop in Crete or the appointer of bishops
Inasmuch as elder (presbyteros) and bishop (episkopos) are synonymous offices in the NT, and inasmuch as Titus was to appoint elders in Crete; should he not rather be called an appointer of bishops, rather than a bishop? Is there some contemporary source which calls Titus a bishop? Was he not more accurately called a missionary and an apostolic legate of Paul? The only contemporary source I know of for this is the Book of Titus, and data in a secondary source which is not supported by ancient contemporary sources (duly cited and footnoted) would not be a reliable secondary source.
