Dr. Bill Creasy expands on 2 Corinthians, Paul's second epistle, written around A.D. 40, after his return from Arabia. While Paul may seem larger than life, this text shows him as deeply human; like every man, he can be weak, angry, or triumphant. By putting the very personal and passionate epistle in terms everyone can understand, Dr. Creasy tells a masterful story. Although the occasional background sound can be distracting, this live recording makes listeners feel very present with this enthusiastic and articulate teacher. A former professor, Dr. Creasy employs varied pitches and pacing to make his every word count while captivating biblical experts and newbies alike.
Paul sends 1 Corinthians to the church at Corinth, and when they receive the epistle, they are livid! They immediately write back to Paul in very harsh terms (the letter from Corinth has been lost, but Paul alludes to it in 2 Corinthians), prompting Paul to get on board ship in Ephesus, sail to Corinth and address the church in person. It is not a pleasant visit. When Paul gets back to Ephesus he has second thoughts about his “short but painful visit”, and he writes 2 Corinthians to smooth things over. Not long into the epistle, though, Paul shifts tone. People in Corinth have called Paul’s apostleship into question, and they have accused him of stealing the collection he had taken up for the church in Jerusalem! Listen as Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy illuminates the contentious relationship between Paul and this troublesome church he had created.
