Co- Authorship in Second Corinthians

Show Summary Details


The ‘we’ passages in 2 Cor 1‐9 (1:3‐14; 1:18‐22; 2:14‐7:2; 7:13‐8:7; 8:16‐24) reveal Timothy's contribution as co‐author. The alternating ‘I’ sections (1:15‐17; 1:23‐2:13; 7:3‐12; 8:8‐15; 9:1‐15) were dictated by Paul alone because they concern matters in which Timothy was not involved, viz. the Intermediate Visit and the Collection for the Poor of Jerusalem.

Keywords: Co‐authorship; Timothy; singular; plural; we; I
