This study of "2 Corinthians" indicates that Paul maintained that Christian life and ministry generally, and apostolic ministry in particular, must be carried out through divine power, not human power. The Christian congregation in Corinth found Paul's "weak" presentation of the gospel and his approach to ministry to be scandalous, an attitude reinforced by contemporary Corinthian culture. As a result many in the congregation were less than satisfied with Paul's manner of ministry and his lifestyle that was characterized by suffering, affliction, opposition and weakness. However, Paul's criteria for evaluating ministry, and by implication God's criteria, were significantly different from those of the Corinthian congregation.
