- 2 Corinthians was written by Paul to the church in Corinth from Macedonia on his 3rd Missionary Journey
- Paul had started the church about 5 years prior to the writing of this letter and had spent 18 months in the city of Corinth.
- He has written them three other letters prior to this one.
- There has been all sorts of conflict in the church towards Paul. Paul had made a brief visit to Corinth from Ephesus that didn’t go well. See the detailed summary of Paul’s interactions with the Corinthians in the Study Hub on the Backstory page for more details lying behind this letter.
