By V George Shillington
V. George Shillington sees this letter as Paul's own testimony approximately his ministry of reconciliation one of the Corinthian Christians (chapters 1-9) and his ministry in protecting the reality of the gospel (chapters 10-13). The thread that ties the 2 components jointly is Paul's conviction on pastoral ministry less than the banner of Christ. Paul insists that ministry is to be borne in disorder like that of Christ crucified. In elevating the crucified Messiah out of the outdated construction, God has inaugurated a brand new construction, during which believers already take part. the one boast allowed is within the Lord, no longer in one's personal achievements or increased experiences.
