Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 8:23

_ _ fellow helper concerning youGreek, “fellow worker towards you.”

_ _ our brethren — the two mentioned in 2 Corinthians 8:18, 2 Corinthians 8:22.

_ _ messengers — rather, as the Greek, “apostles”: in the less strict sense (Acts 14:14).

_ _ of the churches — sent by the churches, as we are by the Lord (Philippians 2:25). There was in the synagogue an ecclesiastical officer, called “the angel of the Church,” whence the title seems derived (compare Revelation 2:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 8:16-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 8:23

My partner — In my cares and labours. The glory of Christ — Signal instruments of advancing his glory.
