Beyond the Impasse

image of Novum Testamentum

Abstract Amongst defenders of the Pauline authorship of 2 Cor 6:14-7:1, an impasse exists between those who read the ἄπιστοι of v. 14 as a reference to the Gentile pagans of the city and those who read it as a reference to the “false apostles” of chs. 10-13. In this article I suggest a possible resolution of that impasse, based on a re-examination of the content and function of holiness concepts within 2 Corinthians. The ἄπιστοι in view are indeed the Gentile pagans of Corinth, but the principal issue over which Paul is urging the Corinthians to separate from them is the pagan σοφία σαρκική that has distorted their assessments of Paul and his opponents.
