Macedonia and Illyricum

Macedonia and Illyricum

(p.173) 10 Macedonia and Illyricum

Jerome Murphy-O'Connor

Oxford University Press

Titus reported that the Severe Letter had the desired impact, but that the atmosphere of the community at Corinth was being poisoned by continuous carping criticism of Paul stemming from an alliance of the Spirit-people and the Judaizers. Paul had the winter to carefully craft his response. The insight and sophistication of 2 Cor 1–9 make it infinitely superior to 1 Cor. Having dispatched the letter in the spring, Paul headed for Illyricum to preach in virgin territory for the first time in five years. His ministry there was interrupted by bad news from Corinth, which occasioned 2 Cor 10–13, a tour de force of wild sarcasm and irony.
