From Isaiah’s divine call to Ezekiel’s wheel, the prophetic tradition of the Old Testament provides some of the most enigmatic, disturbing, and vivid literature that has ever been produced. The Apostle Paul, thoroughly educated in that literature, made lengthy use of it in his writings both in direct quotes and through allusion, commonly referred to as intertextuality. This collection zooms in on Paul’s use of the prophetic witness in his Corinthian correspondence, especially in 2 Corinthians, to establish his divine calling over the Corinthians and to reinforce his rightful condemnation of that church’s sin. Providing intensive exegetical analysis, the authors demonstrate how Paul uses prophetic language and grammatical structures in order to communicate the full message of the gospel to the Corinthian church.
