The Second Epistle of St. Paul to the Corinthians
In this Epistle St. Paul comforts those who are now reformed by his
admonitions to them in the former and absolves the incestuous man on doing
penance, whom he had before excommunicated for his crime. Hence he treats
of true penance and of the dignity of the ministers of the New Testament.
He cautions the faithful against false teachers and the society of infidels.
He gives an account of his sufferings and also of the favours and graces
which God hath bestowed on him. This second Epistle was written in the
same year with the first and sent by Titus from some place in Macedonia.
