2 Corinthians 4 Commentary

Please choose a passage:

2 Corinthians 4:1-6

Paul continues to defend his apostolic ministry. He declares that his ministry is not about him, but about Christ. He is a servant of Christ and of the people in Corinth.

2 Corinthians 4:7-15

Paul declares that the treasure of the gospel is in us. The strength and power of the gospel is not from us. Though we carry treasure in this earthen vessel (our bodies), the power is from God. The gospel is spreading and as we look at things which are not seen, we see a greater glory than our sufferings in this life.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

We will experience suffering, as Jesus did, but we do not lose heart because of the promises we gain through the resurrection.
