Adult Education: Teaching on 2 Corinthians
The Corinthian correspondence was written to a people in crisis. Paul had originally preached the gospel to the Corinthians, but they had succumbed to factionalism, with ‘heart divisions’ (one very appropriate way to translate the Greek word that has historically been translated ‘schism’) ripping apart the body of Christ. These heart divisions tore the body itself apart and led them to doubt Paul’s efficacy as an apostle. 2 Corinthians is Paul’s spirited defense of his ministry to the Corinthians, which he strikingly casts as an illustration of the ‘power of the cross’, which he had already proclaimed to them ‘as of first importance’ (1 Cor. 15:3).
Anyone concerned about our present ‘heart divisions’ in the church should want to hear about how the apostle Paul’s ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:11-21) and how it formed hearts and minds in ancient Corinth and can do so again in our midst. Join Associate Rector, Jonathan Warren, on Saturday May 12 from 10:3am – 12:30pm for an introduction to this important Pauline letter. All welcome! Light snacks and childcare provided.
