New Defender's Study Bible Notes
3:4 God our Saviour. Note that “God our Saviour” in this verse is essentially synonymous with “Jesus Christ our Saviour” in Titus 3:6. There should be no question that the Lord Jesus Christ, whom we receive as Personal Savior, is God. The Greek word translated “Saviour” (soter, from which we get our theological term, “soteriology,” the study of salvation) occurs twenty-four times in the New Testament. Eight of these take Savior as synonymous with “God,” (the first is in Mary’s “Magnificat,” Luke 1:47), and all of them apply to Jesus Christ.
