The church in Corinth was divided, and Paul, their founding pastor, found himself defending his ministry to them. False teachers had begun spreading lies accusing Paul of selfish motives. But Paul saw this division for what it was—a threat to the gospel of Jesus. Paul wrote this second letter to remind the Corinthians how he’d worked among them. He wasn’t defending himself—he was defending the gospel by placing both himself and the Corinthians under the authority of Jesus Christ. His humble approach is a model for every ministry leader today.
