Study 14 From The Book of 2 Corinthians Is: 2 Corinthians 13search the srciptures

This post is the last of the book of 2 Corinthians and the next post will be on the book of Micah

  1. What effect has Paul’s love for the Corinthians on his attitude to their sin? In answering consider the evidence of both verses 1-6 and verses 7-10. See also 12:20, 21
  2. Consider how closely related the exhortations and promises of verse 11 are to the teaching of the whole letter.
  3. Consider how the prayer of verse 14 sums up our Christian heritage, and gives the complete solution to our threefold need—our sin, sorrow and weakness.

Notes

  1. Verse 1. When Paul comes he will hold a judicial inquiry.  Mt. 18: 16; 1Tim. 5:19.
  2. Verses 2-4. Christ’s ‘crucified in weakness’ is not the whole gospel. He also lives by the power of God, and that power will be manifested also in His servant Paul.
  3. Verses 7-10. Paul would rather that the Corinthians should act rightly, and so make it needless for him to rebuke them, than that he should gain prestige by the demonstration of his apostolic authority.
