In Paul's second letter to the Corinthians, he explores the meaning of the cross in terms of personal suffering. His own suffering, and the suffering of all of the Messiah's people is expressed through Paul's writing. Galatians shows Paul's anger, Philippians shows Paul's joy, and 2 Corinthians is a reflection of Paul's sorrow and an examination of some of his recent wounds.
