Top Highlights

“First, Paul was a man of the Greco-Roman world and a citizen of the Roman Empire.” (Page 5)

“Biblical faith, on the other hand, constitutes a ‘step into the light,’ holding that bold steps are in order because God has revealed what is true about himself, the world, and life in the world (Heb. 11:1–2). When Paul says that we walk ‘by faith’ (a genitive of means, ‘by means of faith’), he insists that his pattern of life is governed by what God has revealed as true about life: in other words, he trusts God, based on revelation.” (Page 286)

“Paul reinforces (even restates) the exhortations, calling the Corinthians to separate from worldly relationships, which defile them and hurt their relationship with God, and to embrace the true worship of the living God, mediated through the apostle’s mission.” (Page 347)

“Yet in the gospel we see an amazing reversal. The all-powerful God sends his ambassadors, seeking reconciliation with those whom he has created but who lack a relationship with him.” (Page 311)

“Thus God told Paul in effect, ‘You do not really need the thorn removed. All you need is my grace to deal with it.’” (Page 593)

Guthrie strikes the right balance in choosing how much information to impart without overloading the reader. . . . Pastors and teachers will find this a very useful volume in preparing messages on 2 Corinthians.
