Chapter Summaries of 2 Corinthians
1 Paul, to the church in Corinth. We share in Christ's sufferings and comfort. My yes is not no, but to spare you I did not visit you.
2 I wrote to you as I did in much anguish. You should forgive the one who caused you pain. Through us God spreads the aroma of Christ.
3 God has made us ministers of a new covenant. When anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is lifted. We are being transformed into glory.
4 God has given us the light of the glory of Christ. We have this treasure in clay jars. Through affliction we look to what is eternal.
5 What is mortal will be clothed with life. If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. We implore you, be reconciled to God!
6 Now is the day of salvation. We commend ourselves as servants. Do not be yoked with unbelievers. We are the temple of the living God.
7 I take great pride in you. I do not regret my letter, for godly grief produces repentance. Our boasts about you to Titus proved true.
8 The churches of Macedonia have given generously for the saints. See that you excel in this grace too. Titus was eager to go to you.
9 I boast to the Macedonians about the gift you promised. God loves a cheerful giver. Your generosity will overflow in thanksgivings.
10 Our weapons destroy arguments against God. What we say by letter we do in person. We only boast within the sphere God has given us.
11 I am jealous for you against these false apostles. I speak as a fool. Do they boast? I have greater labours, beatings and dangers.
12 I will boast of a man who saw paradise. I was given a thorn to keep me from pride. This is foolish! I will gladly be spent for you.
