As part of my series of finding unusual scriptures in the Topical Guide, I came across another interesting one. Titus 1:6
6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
Ok, here are two things I’m curious about: “children not accused of riot”? Was that a problem back then–rioting children? I mean I’ve heard that Nazareth was kind of the ghetto in Jesus day, and a source of violent protests. Is this what it’s referring to?
Secondly, the bishop should be “the husband of one wife.” How did early Mormons who believed that polygamy was essential handle this scripture?
