Chapter Summary

This study examines four instances of Paul’s frank speech—one in his letter to the Galatians and the other three reflected in the fragments that make up 2 Corinthians—and finds (1) that Paul uses frank speech according to the conventions embraced by Philodemus and Plutarch, (2) that Paul adjusts or varies the harshness of frank speech according to his appraisal of the circumstances he addresses, and (3) that Paul’s frankness ranges from the gentlest “sting” in 2 Cor. 6:13, 7:2, to mixed frank speech in Galatians, to harsh frankness in 2 Cor. 10–13.
