2 Corinthians Overview

As I have explained in the past, one of the reasons I am doing this blog is I am curious to see what kind of messages one might get from reading the bible. What might one learn as a take-away. Here is my quick summary of the good and bad from 2 Corinthians.

(note: the chapter link takes you to my page on that chapter, the verse link takes you to the verse on

The Good

2:5-7 Be quick to forgive and comfort those who have done wrong

8:14 promote reciprocal altruism

9:11 Be generous

12:14 Persistence

12:15 Generosity

The Bad

5:8 death is better than life

5:10 do what the church says, you will be judged when you die for it

7:12 Don't worry about the person you have wronged, just get good with God

8:3-4 Poor people should give to the church beyond their means

12:10 Be happy with persecution

13:3-6 request for proof met with threat
