Professor Joh. P. Meyer’s commentary on Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians, Ministers of Christ, was first published in 1963 as part of the centennial celebration observance of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, where Meyer taught for 44 years. Almost fifty years later, another professor of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary and student of Meyer, Armin J. Panning, was asked to update the commentary by incorporating the New International Version of the Bible where appropriate. However, Meyer’s own literal translation of the text of 2 Corinthians has been retained, and this classic commentary continues to influence another generation of pastors and seminary students.
In this commentary on Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians, we have not only an exposition of the great thoughts and words of the divinely inspired writer, but particularly a study of the emotional overtones attending these words, and in great detail a delineation of the concrete situations out of which this writing grew and toward which it was directed. What thoughts Paul intended his words to convey and why he framed them as he did; how his words were received at Corinth and what sort of effect they wrought—these are the matters that receive primary consideration in this reliable and thoughtful commentary.
