Week 6

Read:

  • Chapters 11 and 12 (2 Corinthians 11:1-12:21)

Information:

  • Paul defends himself against the false prophets and their criticisms (see 2 Corinthians 11:1-12:21).  He includes information regarding why he supported himself by using donations from other Churches and by working versus receiving financial assistance from the Corinthians (11:7-11). He also brings up his many sufferings, dangers, and toils, which show that he is following in Christ’s footsteps (11:16-33). Furthermore, he mentions his visions and revelations and how he is continually tormented by Satan (12:1-10). He suffers, which God uses to show that God’s “power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
  • Paul would not have had to boast about himself if only the Corinthians would have stood up for him against his critics. (see 2 Corinthians 12:1)
  • He will return to Corinth for his 3rd visit, and he fears that he will find that some of the Corinthians are still following the false prophets. (see 2 Corinthians 12:14-21)

Questions:

  • What verse(s) stood out to you and why?
  • Answer the questions found in your study guide and/or in the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible – The Second Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.
