Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

Preaching the Word - 2 Corinthians

by R. Kent Hughes

During Paul’s ministry, Corinth was a newly rebuilt, bustling, important city in the Roman Empire. It was a place full of pride, individualism, wealth, and religious pluralism.

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Philippians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - Philippians

by Gordon D. Fee

Nothing hinders a church’s witness—and its day-to-day existence—like conflict from within.

Paul thus chose to reinforce friendship and morality in his letter, along with their “partnership in the gospe… Read more…

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1-2 Thessalonians

IVP New Testament Commentary Series - 1-2 Thessalonians

by G. K. Beale

The end times (eschatology) intrigued the early church as much as it does today’s church. The new church at Thessalonica, which Paul planted during his short time there, also wondered when the end might be. Paul composed two letters for them, so that they might have a fuller knowledge of the “last things.” Taken in tandem, they explain the “alread… Read more…
