People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 8:6


2Co 8:6 We desired Titus, that as he had begun. This faithful fellow laborer of Paul, when he had gone to Corinth when Paul's first epistle was sent, had begun the collection which it commanded in 1Co 16:1. So he would also finish in you. Now Paul directs that Titus return and complete the collection before the arrival of Paul (Ac 20:1-3). The same grace also. The grace of giving.
