Reformation Study Bible – 2 Cor 11:2
2 Cor 11:2

11:2 I feel a divine jealousy. Paul longs for the Corinthians to remain loyal to Christ. He uses a metaphor of engagement and marriage. If the Corinthians follow the false apostles they will stray from Christ and be unfaithful to Him. Then they could no longer come to Him as a “pure virgin.” It is assumed that God’s ideal for marriage is no prior sexual relations—that a bride would come as a “pure virgin” to her husband, as her husband would also come to her.
