2 Corinthians

Details, Please (Part 2)

Paul even suffered a “thorn in the flesh” (12:7), which God refused to take away, telling him instead, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” (12:9).  His parting warning: “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves” (13:5).

2 Corinthians

Details, Please (Part 1)

Corinthian believers had apparently addressed some of the problems Paul’s fist letter mentioned – though there were still troublemakers who questioned his authority.  He was forced to “speak foolishly” (11:21), boasting of hardships he’d faced serving Jesus: “in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft” (11:23).

Quotable (Part 2)

  • I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. (9:22)
  • For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. (11:26)
  • Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. (13:1)
