ABOUT THIS BOOK

A multi-faceted commentary that breathes fresh insight into Paul's letter

In Second Corinthians, Paul responds to reports of the Corinthian congregation questioning his competency as a divinely sent messenger. Through apologetic demegoria and the use of graphic imagery related to triumphal processions, siege warfare, and emissary travels and negotiation, Paul defends his constancy, persona, and speaking abilities as he extends the offer of clemency and reconciliation to his auditors. Oropeza combines rhetorical pictures (rhetography) with interpretative layers (literary features, intertextuality, socio-cultural, ideological, and sacred textures) to arrive at the rhetorical impact of Paul's message for ancient Mediterranean discourse.

Features:

  • A visual, sensory, and imaginative interpretation of the scripture
  • A comprehensive commentary
  • An avant-garde approach to biblical interpretation
