People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 8:18


2Co 8:18 We have sent with him the brother. Two brethren are sent with Titus. These are not named, and we can only conjecture who they were. As 2Co 8:19 says that he "was chosen of the churches to travel with us in this grace", and as Ac 20:4 says that the Macedonian brethren, Sopater, Aristarchus and Secundus did travel with him to Jerusalem, one of these is probably meant. Many have held that Luke was the person, nor is this improbable.

Discussion for 2 Corinthians 8

  • Brianna vs. 4-11
    While many religions focus on an external ministry, Paul reminded us of the need of an internal ministry. This can be a caring of those taking the lead among us, but also our fellow brothers and sisters. ( Vs. 6) We are not asked to give beyond our means, but to whatever we can reasonably give. So, continue the generous spirit, but never be pressured to give beyond what you can.
  • Ivy Johnson
    Appeal made for the poor and needy Saints in Jerusalem: Paul encourages people at Corinth give liberally. Corinthians Christians abounded in many things: other graces: had example of Christ’s giving, encouraging give unselfishly: Macedonian churches been generous:Titus to Corinth: collection. Paul recommends him and his companions: God will bless them for giving: and it will give glory to God!

    2CORINTHIANS8:7therefore as you abound in everything in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all diligence and in your love to us see that you abound in thisgrace also8:13for I mean not that other men be eased and you burdened8:14but by an equality that now at this timeyour abundance may be a supply for their want that their abundancealso may be a supply for your want that theremay be equality
  • Ann
    Vicki, another meaning would be: we do you to wit (to know) of the grace of God. Amen
  • A disciple
    Wit means know or knowledge; like in the saying, At my wits end. A more clear translation would read: "But, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God..." (Wycliffe Bible)
