Chapter Summary

The holiness of 2 Cor. 7:1 is appropriate for the children of God who walk in light and righteousness. The Christian people have become the people of God and are regarded as equivalent of Israel, to whom God originally had addressed the passages. The Qumran community was the house where there shall not enter anyone whose flesh has a permanent blemish or an Ammonite or a Moabite or a bastard or an alien or a stranger. The Qumran community deemed itself the holy temple of God whose members had separated themselves from all the defilements of the Jerusalem Temple. In conclusion the spirit and language of the passage is so thoroughly in accord with those of the Qumran texts, the Testaments of Twelve Patriarchs and Jubilees that we must conclude that it was written by a Christian who had been steeped in the traditions.

Keywords: 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Christian people; Jerusalem temple; patriarchs; Qumran community
