Rev. Stephen Preus, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Vinton, Iowa, studies 2 Corinthians 4:8-10a on today’s episode: “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus[…]” Rev. Preus talks about the theme of the Paul’s letter, distinguishing between outward circumstances and God’s stance toward you, and Christology in this list of paradoxical experiences.
“The New Covenant” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron featuring a step-by-step walk through 2 Corinthians 3-7:1, focusing on what it means to be Christians of the New Testament age, waiting for the glory of the world to come.
