9780943575988: 2 Corinthians

James Scott explores 2 Corinthians, shedding light on the personal aspect of Paul's problems at Corinth. Emphasizing the two major motifs of the merkabah (heavenly throne-chariot) and Korah's rebellion, Scott suggests that Paul saw his embattled situation as parallel to that of Moses during the rebellion. Includes a brief introduction and references.

"Don't be fooled by its size! Scott's commentary is to the point, clearly written, and filled with provocative proposals for reading this complex letter. From the centrality of Paul's self-understanding and the unity of the letter to "merkabah" mysticism, Korah's rebellion, and the Jewish concept of the nations, Scott's reading rightly reminds us of just how Jewish the Apostle to the Gentiles was and of how much we must know his mileu to understand his message! Here is an insightful introduction to both the influences and intent of 2 Corinthians."
" Scott J. Hafemann, Wheaton College

From the Back Cover:

Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

The apostle Paul writes a letter to the church in Corinth that defends his calling and exhorts unity through love as the church collects gifts for believers in Jerusalem. He also helps us understand and act on the truth that Christianity does not renounce and forsake the world but, in love, renews it. This commentary offers an in-depth look at this letter full of reconciliation and harmony.

James M. Scott is assistant professor of biblical studies at Trinity Western University. He is the author of Paul and the Nations, Adoption as Sons of God, and Exile.
