Hermeneia: 2 Corinthians 8 and 9: A Commentary on Two Administrative Letters of the Apostle Paul


Fortress Press 1985

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


“In a fresh examination [of 2 Corinthians] what is needed first is a detailed and careful analysis of the chapters in order to find out whether they in fact can be related to letter categories known from other ancient epistolary literature, that is, whether their literary form, internal composition, argumentative rhetoric, and function can be shown to be that of independent epistolary fragments. The present study provides such an analysis of 2 Corinthians 8 and 9. This analysis is in most represents the first such attempt, but it is certainly not intended to be the last word on the subject. Sufficient evidence is provided to support the conclusions, so that quick reactions of mere agreement or disagreement, a mere embrace or indignation, will be avoided. The challenge to the serious students of the New Testament is to sustain a developed scientific argument.” —from the forward and preface
