2 Corinthians Background

If you're reading along with the Corinthians Challenge, then you're starting on 2 Corinthians today.

2 Corinthians is Paul's most personal letter. He bares his soul and describes his gut-wrenching pain over his strained relationship with the church he founded at Corinth.

You'll get even more out of this book if you know a little more about what's behind it. Here are two sites that provide some interesting background for 2 Corinthians:

On Sunday at Covenant, I'll be teaching on 2 Corinthians 1:3-11, where Paul talks about "Comfort." Just for fun, here's the video clip we'll be using to introduce the topic. I don't mind letting you see it now, 'cause it's funny enough to watch more than once. (But see my post from earlier today for an important "disclaimer").

Hope to see you Sunday!
