2 Corinthians 2

Summary: Paul talks of his ministry, how he both supports and is supported by those he serves.

2 Corinthians 1

Summary: Paul greets again the believers in Corinth. He outlines his hopes for them, for himself, and for the church as a whole.

Response: A few verses stand out. First, the part about knowing in part and in full, which I'm excited for- and yet I know I put more faith in Christ with the less I know. Hmm, perhaps this dilemma will get solved throughout the letter. Or not, that may not be his main point and I don't want to overthink this, though I might be doing so already.

Response: This is a letter, after all, and I'd think it weird if we saw anything less than the true fellowship Paul works for.
