St Paul the inspired author of the Second Letter to the Corinthians Agape Bible Study
The Second Letter to the Corinthians

Many Biblical scholars agree that no other letter written by St. Paul demands more study and reflection than the second canonical letter he wrote to the Church at Corinth, Greece. The letter reveals both Paul's love and his frustrations concerning the faith community he founded. In Paul's admonishments and encouragements, we see an early Christian community that struggled with many of the same issues that Christians face today. Through the study of this letter, we also come to a deeper appreciation of Paul's inspired insight into how, in His divine love, God reached out to a fallen humanity through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit.
