In II Corinthians , Paul addresses believers as a coach, a friend, a mentor, and an apostle. He deals with them at a crucial point in the development of the Church…a point where others were trying to manipulate them as a sect of Judaism, denying the gospel of grace. Today, the struggle is not to be unique from Judaism, but to be unique among the melting pot of religions in the world. And that which sets us apart, the grace of God to send His son to die on the cross, has never been more under siege.

Paul had declared the truths of the gospel, but others came to Corinth after him and sought to undermine all he had done. The Christians in Jerusalem were in dire need of help. The false teachers were claiming that Paul was not even an apostle. Rumors and half-truths were common rhetoric. In order to defend the truth, Paul had to defend the call God had placed upon him, and all the things that call had led him to endure. Dan Mitchell brings Paul’s words into focus to challenge every believer to defend the truth, to care for those in need, and to work together in unity to accomplish the goal of presenting Christ to a dying, needy world.
