The Second Epistle to the Corinthians probably was written
about a Year after the first. Its contents are closely connected
with those of the former epistle. The manner in which the Letter
St. Paul formerly wrote had been received, is particularly
noticed; this was such as to fill his Heart with gratitude to
God, who enabled him fully to discharge his duty towards them.
Many had shown marks of Repentance, and amended their conduct,
but others still followed their false teachers; and as the
Apostle delayed his visit, from his unwillingness to treat them
with severity, they charged him with levity and change of
conduct. Also, with pride, vain-Glory, and severity, and they
spake of him with contempt. In this epistle we find the same
ardent Affection towards the disciples at Corinth, as in the
former, the same zeal for the honour of the Gospel, and the same
boldness in giving Christian reproof. The first six chapters are
chiefly practical: the Rest have more reference to the state of
the Corinthian Church, but they contain many rules of general

The Eighth Book of The New Testament.

This epistle was written by the Apostle Paul and Timothy to the church in Corinth.
