Paul proves he's powerful adequate to be the chief of Corinth and ironically demonstrates that weak point should belong to the identification of an apostle. one other factor regards the legitimacy of his boasting. The selfish boast according to the comparability along with his rivals is the person who Paul calls silly, yet he's pressured, however, to adopt it. The software that finally permits him to rework self-aggrandizing speech into speech that's keen on Christ is his paradoxical boasting of weak point. The cautious crafting of his discourse in line with Christological rules eventually speaks for qualifying it as a sing his own praises speech (periautologia) with a pedagogical, no longer shielding, purpose.
