Christ in the Scriptures: 2 Corinthians

From NKJV Study Bible:

‘Because Paul indicated that he experienced the comfort of the risen Christ in the midst of his hardships, he reveals Jesus as the source of the believers’ comfort (2 Corinthians 1:5)

Given Paul’s tragedies, Jesus, the Comforter, is a major emphasis in this letter.

But look further and you will find much more:

Jesus is celebrated

as our triumph (2:14)

our light (4:6)

our reconciliation (5:19)

our substitute (5:21)

our gift (9:15)

and our strength (12:9) .’
