Item Description...
Overview
The 1986 commentary of veteran scholar Ralph P. Martin on 2 Corinthians has been thoroughly updated by the author, with assistance from a young promising scholar, Carl N. Toney, along with the help of David J. Downs and Mark W. Linder. New sections on the Collection and Rhetoric have been added, and the issues of Composition and Social Setting of the letter have been included, along with topics such as the Spirit, the Opponents, Paul's Theology, and the Resurrection in this epistle. Pastors and students will appreciate this new edition with its up-to-date bibliography and discussion of pertinent issues.In a

penetrating analysis of Paul's responses to the various crises within

the Corinthian congregation, Dr. Martin gives insight into the

particular problems of Christianity as expressed in the hedonistic,

cosmopolitan setting of Corinth. He shows how Paul's attempt to clearly

distinguish the gospel from Hellenistic Judaism and Hellenistic Jewish

Christian ideology results in a moving statement of the Christian

message. Rather than the "theology of glory" prevalent in Corinth, Paul

articulates hist theology of the Cross as a "theology of weakness," of

servanthood and ministry. What was at stake at Corinth, says Dr.

Martin, was "nothing less than the essence of the kerygma as in

expressed in the way of the cross. . .  for proclamation and daily

living." The Word Biblical Commentary series has sold over 1.4 million copies.
