Central Idea: Paul declares that he is going to defend himself so that the accusation of inconsistency (between his demeanor in letter and in person) will be seen for what it is... false. Explanations / Questions: v. 7, "you are looking at what is obvious..." and, by implication, not seeing it. v.7-8, Paul's declaration, "I will not be ashamed," seems to take center stage in this paragraph. In grounding his previous statement which calls the Corinthians to examine the (rather obvious) facts, it gains the force of declaring, "I will defend myself." This, then is the "action" that has a purpose marked by... v.9, hina , (so that I may not seem to appear...) Question: In v.8 Paul describes his authority as having been given by the Lord for the sake of building up not destroying. Does this serve to (a) temper what he just said in v.4-5, i.e. "I don't want to use my authority in this manner (but I will);" or (b) add force to his defence by stating that it is consistent with the purpose of his authority, i.e. "In asserting my authority, my goal is to build you up," (see v.5, bring about obedience); or (c) ____ _ ______,?
