II Corinthians Written as much as a year after I Corinthians (and after yet another letter mentioned in II Cor 2:4), it appears that some other apostolic-type persons had visited Corinth in the interlude with great boasts about their credentials. Paul in this letter shows great concern as a shepherd for the young Corinthian church and lays out for them what boasts should really most concern them. Indeed, the word “boast” appears more than 20 times in this letter (depending on the translation you are using). See if you can find them (or their equivalent if your translation uses a different word) as you read, for they may be things about which WE might look to boast as well. You will encounter a much more emotional Paul in this letter than in the preceding one. He is so because of his great passion for the authentic Gospel message and because of his love for those in the Corinthian Church . In this second biblical letter of Paul to the Corinthians, we find that Jesus is not Yes one minute and No the next but always Yes for us and our needs (ch. 1), that some passages of Scripture can almost be smelled (ch. 2), that letters of recommendation sometimes come in human form (ch. 3), that wonderful funeral readings can be found among Paul's words (ch. 4), that ambassadors are not only found in embassies (ch. 5), that resolute perseverance finally does pay off (ch. 6), that there is some “distress” or “grievance” that is good for us (ch. 7), that we should be encouraged to be generous (ch. 8), that if we sow sparingly we will reap sparingly (ch. 9), that Paul was able to defend himself (ch. 10), that Paul was a little like Robin Hood (ch. 11:8), that though we may have a thorn in our life, God's grace is enough for us (ch. 12), and that witnesses are important when charges are made (ch. 13).
