Maintain a consistent study with a second volume from the Augsburg Commentary on the New Testament: 2 Corinthians. Most scholars believe that the book we now know as 2 Corinthians was actually one of many letters to the Corinthian church.
After Paul’s departure from Corinth, partisan politics became a serious issue. In addition, a number of moral and theological problems surfaced. Because of his conscientious concern for new converts (2 Cor. 11:28), Paul appears to have carried on an extensive correspondence.
Noted Greek scholar William Frederick Danger, editor of the well-known BDAG volume, deals with these issues and more in his stimulating commentary on 2 Corinthians. Together, these two books maintain a close-knit message of patient rebuke and hope for reconciliation.
