New Defender's Study Bible Notes
7:6 coming of Titus. Titus had evidently brought a letter or other news to Paul from the church at Corinth. He is mentioned no less than nine times in this one epistle. Paul had been anxiously awaiting his return from Corinth with the church’s response to his first epistle. He had evidently hoped first that Titus would come to Ephesus, next that he might meet him at Troas, and finally he was waiting for him at Philippi in Macedonia (Acts 20:1,5). He was very concerned until Titus finally arrived, carrying all the news to which Paul was now responding in his second epistle to the Corinthians.
