Abstract

The history of the apostle Paul as related in 2 Corinthians and the way in which he experienced the work of God (by the Holy Spirit) in his life is the focal point of this article. The phrase έν πνευματι ἁγιῳ in 2 Corinthians 6:6 is pivotal in an understanding of how Paul experienced not only the difficulties, but also the fact that God by his Holy Spirit, guided him through all these difficulties. These experiences were not limited to Paul alone, but he often involved other believers and illustrated by his example how the power of God could be experienced by them as well. This was done by example and not by Paul presenting himself as an archetype.
