If anyone deserved the respect of Corinthian believers, it was the apostle Paul. Yet in his second letter to the church at Corinth, we find Paul defending his character and credibility against the malicious attacks of false apostles. Rather than highlighting his personal strengths, amazingly, Paul points to his weaknesses! Paul's approach reveals one of the paradoxes of God's kingdom: God's strength was made perfect through the apostle's weakness. So it remains today. God's sufficiency shines in the face of our insufficiency, and his most powerful work is accomplished through us when we acknowledge our weakness and complete dependence on him.

2 Corinthians, A Video Study features scholar Scott Hafemann teaching through the book of 2 Corinthians in 19 engaging and challenging lessons. Based on Hafemann's 2 Corinthians commentary in the NIV Application Commentary series, these lessons explore the links between the Bible and our own times that reveal 2 Corinthians' enduring relevance for our twenty-first-century lives.

2 Corinthians, A Video Study is part of the Zondervan Beyond the Basics Video Series, which is dedicated to bringing expert teaching from world's best biblical scholars and theologians directly to interested learners. This study offers the opportunity to learn more about one of Paul's famous letters to the early church from one of today's premier New Testament scholars.
