A break between these two verses is fundamental to all partition theories of 2 Cor. In fact there is a smooth and natural connection, once it is recognized that Paul's mention of his success at Troas triggered a memory of the apostolic impact of the Macedonian churches (1 Thess 1:6‐8; Phil 2:14‐16), which evolved into a development on the nature of authentic apostolate.
