  • II Corinthians 1:1-11
  • Introduction:
    • It is generally understood that II Corinthians was written by Paul shortly after I Corinthians. It was written from Macedonia about A.D. 57.
    • Purpose of the book:
      • To commend the Corinthians for correcting some of the things Paul rebuked them for in I Corinthians.
      • Give further instruction and admonition about the collection for the needy saints in Jerusalem (II Corinthians 8-9).
      • To rebuke those who were still tearing Paul down and advocating Judaism.
    • II Corinthians 1:2 – Peace: See Philippians 4:7.
    • II Corinthians 1:4 – Overcoming afflictions: See James 2:2.
    • II Corinthians 1:6-9 – Paul was God-centered, but also focused on the needs of the Christians in Corinth. He had great confidence that they would continue to do what was right.
    • II Corinthians 1:11 – This shows that Paul wanted people to pray for him and for his physical deliverance. This shows it is right to pray for physical things.
