Summary of Matera’s “Introduction” The first 32 pages of Matera’s commentary comprise an introduction in six sections to the Scripture we know as 2 Corinthians. Matera has condensed what could have been a much longer discussion, and offers valuable observations. In 12–15 pages, write a clear summary of each of these six sections. Demonstrate that you understand the issues as Matera presents them, and his conclusions. At the end of each section, use a few sentences to respond more personally to that section. You may express appreciation, disagreement, or confusion, to name a few possibilities.
