Overviews: 2 Corinthians: Typical beginning 1:1-2 Prayer 1:3-7 Paul appends a brief report on how God delivered him and his companions from a terrible ordeal that they faced in Roman province of Asia 1:8-11 Offers a defensive explanation for his recent dealing with the church, including his rationale for canceling a promised visit and for writing them an unusually harsh letter instead 1:12-2:13 An extended commentary on what Paul considers to be the meaning and value of his ministry among the Corinthians 2:14-6:13 Paul discusses both the character and the content of that ministry, emphasizing what God has accomplished through him and his associates. Then he exhorts the Corinthians to avoid partnerships with the unbelievers 6:14-7:1 Insists that he has always had their best interest at heart 7:2-4 Returns at last to the subject of his recent relations with the community 7:5-16 (picking back up from 2:13) He rejoices that the difficult letter that he sent them did bring them to repentance, and he affirms his newfound confidence in them. Also takes up on the subject of collection he’s taking for Jerusalem. 8:1-9:15 Then tone changes abruptly and he returns to defense of his ministry, employing bitter sarcasm as he compares himself to a group of “super apostles” 11:5, 12:11 Super apostles maligned him in the Corinthian church 10:1-13:10 Letter ends with a few quick exhortations 13:11-12 A final benediction 13:13
