Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 12:18

_ _ I desired Titus — namely, to go unto you. Not the mission mentioned 2 Corinthians 8:6, 2 Corinthians 8:17, 2 Corinthians 8:22; but a mission previous to this Epistle, probably that from which he had just returned announcing to Paul their penitence (2 Corinthians 7:6-16).

_ _ a brother — rather “OUR (literally, ‘the’) brother”; one well known to the Corinthians, and perhaps a Corinthian; probably one of the two mentioned in 2 Corinthians 8:18, 2 Corinthians 8:22.

_ _ same spirit — inwardly.

_ _ steps — outwardly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 12:11-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 12:18
