This Epistle was sent to the Corinthians a year or so later than the preceding one. The first chapters are devoted to valuable spiritual advice. Toward the close, Paul learning that some have belittled his importance and position in the Church, asserts the greatness of his labors and the divinity of his mission from Christ.
