Discussion for 2 Corinthians 11

  • Word
    Many people live in Jerusalem and other cities of Israel and called themselves Jews. When reading if you come across the word Jew look it up because you will see it means resident so it is not always what it appears to be.
  • Word
    Subject of the Corinthians is to prepare the saints for what is coming in the future. Paul tells us in 2 Thess 2 that Satan will claim to be God and Daniel tells us Satan comes in peace and prosperity and this chapter tells us that Satan and his faller Angels come transformed which is disguised if you look it up. So you have instead of CHRIST coming saying he is CHRIST and his locust priest.

    To the comment below this makes these Jews Anti-Christian.
  • Anne
    Paul gives an account of the trials and struggles he went through for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and he encourages the saints to remain focus on that gospel and not allow false doctrine to come in and confuse them.
  • As a "chaste virgin to Christ " Paul feared that the Corinthians would revert back to their former ways before they came into the knowledge of the truth. Prior to that time, they have been deceived just as Eve was!
  • Robert wallander
    2 Cor. 11:32 33, compare this to Acts 9:23-25. How many times is Paul let down the walls of Damascus in a basket? 2 Cor is a first hand account, Paul is being chased by, In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me. In Acts, it is the Jews who are after him. Is this anti-Semitic!
