Of such a one I will boast; yet of myself I will not boast, except in my infirmities. 2 Corinthians 12:5

It is obvious on the surface that Paul has been speaking of himself concerning the visions of the third heaven and of Paradise. Therefore, the words of this verse are the epitome of irony.… Read the rest

…how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. 2 Corinthians 12:4

Once again, with the two thoughts finished, placing them side by side gives a better perspective of Paul’s statements –

*I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven.… Read the rest

*I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven.… Read the rest

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven. 2 Corinthians 12:2

Verse 1 said, “It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast.” This verse now moves into the third person to avoid any such hint of boasting.… Read the rest

It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord:
2 Corinthians 12:1

Paul’s first words can be taken in a couple ways. One is that they might be an ironic statement to the Corinthians. When he says, “It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast” he might be saying, “As you can see, I have done nothing worthy of boasting.… Read the rest
