The Chrysostom Bible Commentary Series is not so much in honor of John Chrysostom as it is to continue and promote his legacy as an interpreter of the biblical texts for preaching and teaching God's congregation. In this volume, Tarazi explains that previous studies of 2 Corinthians are plagued by "the unwarranted premise that the Corinthian correspondence contains different letters sent out on different occasions...The premise sounds convincing," Tarazi writes, "because several times one hears reference to Paul having written to the Corinthians (1 Cor 5:9; 2 Cor 2:2-3; 7:12), if not outright to "letters" (1 Cor 5:9; 2 Cor 7:8; 10:9-11)...However, when one deals with the New Testament books as literature, then one will realize that reference to something 'written' is a mere literary stratagem to draw the hearer's attention to the importance of what is being 'said.'" The Rev. Rev. Dr. Paul Nadim Tarazi is Professor of Biblical Studies and Languages at St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary. He is the author of a three volume Introduction to the Old Testament, a four volume Introduction to the New Testament, Galatians: A Commentary, I Thessalonians: A Commentary, Land and Covenant, and the Chrysostom Bible, Genesis: A Commentary, Philippians: A Commentary, Romans: A Commentary, Colossians & Philemon: A Commentary, 1 Corinthians: A Commentary, Ezekiel: A Commentary, and Joshua: A Commentary. His Audio Bible Commentaries on the books of the Old and New Testament are available online through the Orthodox Center for the Advancement of Biblical Studies (OCABS).
