2 Corinthians (Introduction)

2 Corinthians
2 CorinthiansSteve Gregg

In this introduction to 2 Corinthians, Steve Gregg highlights some of the background knowledge that he lacks in order to properly understand Paul's letters to the Corinthians. He discusses one theory that suggests that Paul wrote the letter in defense of his apostleship and to advocate for avoidance of fornicators and idolaters. However, the exact relationship between the first nine chapters and the following chapters 10-13 remains a mystery. Gregg also notes that the letter addresses issues of disunity and immorality within the church, although the exact nature of these issues is not always clear.
