2 Corinthians is a letter from Paul the Apostle to the Church of Corinth. This online Bible study into this wonderful New Testament book that I started back in December of 2015, fell by the wayside for several reasons. I do things pertaining to this site as the Lord moves me. As always, all scripture used will be from the King James Bible.
That said, he’s moved me to concentrate on this New Testament book, and to bring this particular study into completion. It will take some time to cover each chapter (as in a couple of pages, revolves around a single verse.) There is so much to extract from this book, and I’m excited to see where the Father will take us as we journey through the scriptures!
If you’ve been to this particular page on this site before, scroll on down to check and see whether or not there is something new added to the links section. I will be adding links to each new page that is included in this study toward the bottom of this page.
Eventually, once I’ve completed the entire book of 2 Corinthians, and the Lord settles it in my spirit to move on to the next book, I’ll make sure to link all of them together so you’ll have a legend at the bottom of each page in this online Bible study. But, because I tend to be a bit absent minded at times, I’ll wait till they’re all completed and include the links in one foul swoop on every page. If I tried to do them as I go, I’m quite confident that I’ll find a way to mess it up.
Book of 2 Corinthians Posts & Summary
Here’s a summary of the book itself, giving a rough outline of each chapter. I’m sure that this could be greatly expanded, but I kept it short for quick reference purposes.
Please take note of the dropdown menus below. Each will take you to a study page of concerning each section. This is a work in progress, but there’s plenty of reading already prepared below. It might be a good idea to bookmark this page, so you can come right back in the future to view new articles and studies for each chapter.

Well Known Verses
Here is a list of some of the most well known verses from 2 Corinthians. I’m not suggesting that this is a definitive list, nor am I saying that these are the best verses to be found in this epistle. These are verses that you’d most likely hear spoken of, written about, repeated in meme’s, etc…
2 Corinthians Chapter 1:
20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
There are so many different reasons why this book of the Bible is important. But honestly… Can’t that be said about every book of the Bible? I’d venture to say so, considering that the Author behind the vale is the Lord God Almighty through his Holy Spirit, penned by his Prophets and Apostles. In my opinion, the Word of God has been kept preserved in the King James Bible.
But as we dive into the study of 2 Corinthians, we’ll discover that there’s a wide range of topics that are gleaned from the pages. In some cases, each verse is it’s own lesson, causing for us to consider that the best possible way to comprehend the many things that Paul is writing about.
One thing that I would like to say, is that although there is much to be spoken about concerning the Word of God (not just this study, but the whole book,) take whatever you see to prayer. Prayerfully move forward, and perhaps glean from the commentaries I give, but don’t forget…
I am going to be posting about what the Lord has shown me personally through his Word. This is not an end all, or final say. But simply documentation of a journey through the Word of God. I ask you, to not use any of this as a replacement of your journey with the Lord, but perhaps to supplement your walk, as the Father may add to your understanding through these studies. It’s all to the glory of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, and for our edification.
Thanks for checking out this study! I pray that it has been a blessing to you. If it has, please use the share tabs to spread it around. It sure does help out!
May the Lord bless all of you in the name of Jesus, and thanks for looking into this study into 2 Corinthians!
