2Co 10:1 Judaizing False Teachers Rebuked SUMMARY OF II CORINTHIANS 10: Paul's Personal Appeal. His Weapons Spiritual. What Was Said of His Bodily Presence. What He Will Be When Present. Concerning Boasting. The Saint May Glorify in the Lord Only. Now I Paul. Thus far in this epistle Paul has associated himself with Timothy and his fellow-laborers (2Co 1:1). He has spoken in the plural. Now he uses the singular, and there will be seen in the 10th and 11th chapters a tone of severity contrasted with the gentleness and love of those that precede. Those chapters are addressed to the church which had as a body cleared itself of fault. There was, however, a faction who opposed him, who disparaged his claims as an apostle, and he now speaks for the benefit of these. This accounts for the change of style and tone. Since the opposition was to him personally, he speaks in person. I repeat what has been before said, that this opposition came mainly from the Judaizing Christians who thought Paul had gone wrong in not requiring Gentile Christians to come under the bondage of the Jewish law. Who in presence [am] base among you. Lowly. His first letter had been stern. See 1Co 5:11-13. The opposers said that he was very gentle when present, but bold when absent.
