2 corinthians Reviews
Good of course! This was an encouraging read! "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." 2 Corinthians 4:7-9
I read NKJV, not ESV, but couldn't find NKJV listed w/2 Corinthians alone. Also, the author is not anonymous, but is God through the apostle Paul. This was a really good for me to read right now, especially the first half or so. I guess I tend to neglect this book. It was good to dwell on it a while, meditate about some of the themes, grow more familiar with it.
WrensReads Review:Sidenote: The reason for such vague and short and "eh" words on each of these books, is because I wasn't challenging the study of the Bible when I read these. I was challenging myself to read the whole Bible in a year because I knew it would be discipline to keep at it daily. I do, however, plan to pick up a book and study what it is saying. Those will be longer reads and more notes.So here is my review from my "Read the Bible in a Year" challenge. Usually just snippets of thoughts and random things I liked about the book itself. Nothing in-depth.So here is my review of 2 Corinthians! Another letter and another one to help evaluate my life and soak in the greatest of God.WrensReads | Goodreads | Twitter | Instagram
I found this work of immense interest and importance.The compilation of historical accounts, wisdom & proverbial insights, and thought provoking texts, along with descriptive and informative footnotes, are of great value.Explanations, including varying scholarly views depicting the material related in this book, are available for each of the 66 individual books of the Bible.This book is but one of the individual 66 books/letters which were written by forty different authors over at least 1500 years in three different languages on three different continents, which comprise the Bible.Read for life-related reasons and personal research.Overall, a great resource for the researcher, enthusiast, and devotee.
p. 2025. These consideration have convinced many scholars that 2 Corinthians is a composite of different letters, eve it their precise extent and relative chronology are uncertain.p. 2029. 4:4. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is in the image of God.Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. http://biblehub.com/2_corinthians/4-4...p. 2033. 8:8. I do not say this as a command, but I am testing the genuineness of your love against the earnestness of others.p. 2038. 12:14. . . . . for children ought not to lay up for their parents, but parents for their children.Now I am coming to you for the third time, and I will not be a burden to you. I don't want what you have--I want you. After all, children don't provide for their parents. Rather, parents provide for their children. http://biblehub.com/2_corinthians/4-4...There are seven undisputed Pauline Epistles: Romans; 1 & 2 Corinthians; Galatians; Philippians; 1 Thessalonians; and Philemon. -- From "The History of the Bible: The Making of the New Testament Canon," by Bart D. Ehrman.
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of ChristBless the name of Jesus!
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved.BLESS THE NAME OF JESUS!
The Corinthians are interesting as historical documents but make poor literature. It is fascinating to see what the branches of early Christianity that Paul dealt with were like.
