THE SECOND LETTER TO THE CORINTHIAN CHURCH

2 CORINTHIANS

 

Overview:

This letter was written primarily for the benefit of a culturally and religiously divided Christian community in Corinth, the capital city of the Roman province called Achaia, where he had planted it only a few years earlier during his second missionary journey. This letter appears to have been a third letter to Corinth, since in 1 Corinthians the Apostle Paul mentions a previous letter (cf. 1 Corinthians 5:9-13), now lost. Nine separate discourses are presented in this letter:

(1) Greetings and Explanations (1:1-2:11),
(2) Discourse on Self-exaltation (2:12-3:18),
(3) Discourse on Salvation (4:1-18),
(4) Discourse on Urgent Ministry Matters (5:1-6:2),
(5) Discourse on Paul's Difficulties (6:3-7:1),
(6) Discourse on Motivations for Service (7:2-8:9),
(7) Discourse on Practical Christian Giving (8:10-9:15),
(8) Discourse on Apostolic Authority (10:1-12:13), and
(9) Closing Greetings (12:14-13:14).

Authorship:

A claim within this letter itself identifies it as having been composed by the Apostle Paul (cf. 1:1).

Composition Date:

Most conservative scholars date this letter a few years after he completed 1 Corinthians; i.e., during the late 50's AD.

Messianic Theme:

The Ministry in the Messiah
