Show Summary Details

Preview

In all instances in the Corinthian correspondence when ‘Jesus’ is used alone, without any qualification, it carries the connotation of an earthly existence marked by weakness, humiliation, and suffering. ‘Another Jesus’ in consequence should be the antithesis, namely, ‘the lord of glory’ preached by Paul's opponents at Corinth.

Keywords: Jesus, weakness; humiliation; suffering; glory; opponents
