2 CORINTHIANS

WHERE AND WHEN WRITTEN?:

From Macedonia on third missionary journey (9:2-4); sometime after 1 Corinthians, perhaps also 56 or 57 A.D.

A THEME FOR 2 CORINTHIANS:

“PAUL DEFENDS HIS MINISTRY”

THE CONTENTS OF 2 CORINTHIANS:

2 Corinthians is the most personal of all of Paul’s epistles. In this letter he tells much about himself. He “pours out his soul” to the Corinthians about his hardships, his distress and anguish, his weaknesses, his joys, and his love and concern for the Corinthian Christians. Throughout the letter Paul returns to his theme of defending his ministry before the Corinthians. It would be difficult to force a logical outline on 2 Corinthians. Perhaps it is enough to say that chapters 1-7 and 10-13 deal generally with Paul’s ministry; and chapters 8-9 encourage generous Christian giving.
