    2 Corinthians

    ,
    Corinth was a very important commercial center which made it easy for it to be a place for all sorts of vice and evil. Also, its closeness to Athens added the problem of intellectualism. Greece was known for its philosophers and philosophy. St. Paul established the church of Corinth during his second missionary trip. Unfortunately, the immoral environment found in the city adversely affected the church. Reports of the problems within the church reached St. Paul's ears, and so he wrote an earlier letter (1 Corinthians) to answer these reports, correcting sinful practices and refuting false doctrine. In this second letter, written only a few months after the first, St. Paul, as a caring father, wanted to make sure that his rebukes in the earlier letter were received positively, and that it actually encouraged them to repent. He also focuses his letter on defending his apostleship, rebuking ungodly behavior that still persisted in Corinth, and to encourage them to collect money for the needy in Jerusalem. This letter is one that is quite beneficial to those serving others for God, as it explains how service should be, as we learn from the example of St. Paul.  This Orthodox Christian commentary is derived from a series of sermons given by His Eminence Metropolitan Youssef of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States, where His Eminence has been serving since the early 90s.

    Abba Arsenius – The Tutor of the Emperor’s Sons

    ,
    Abba Arsenius, who lived in luxury and pleasure, living the life of kings, who was a scholar in Rome, honored in Constantinople, tutor of Emperors, living in palaces-his food becomes dried bread and a morsel of beans, his drink a little of foul water with a great deal of tears. After being an eloquent rhetorician, he becomes the most renowned model of silence. And he, whom they could not find a better tutor than him in Rome, becomes passionate about learning from others, and with the least nod. And he, who had mastered Latin and Greek, both language and culture, seeks to learn the alphabet on the path of virtue from a simple monk. And after having for a time taken pleasure in fragrant perfumes, he is pleased that water become fetid in his cell, in the vessel in which he soaked the palm leaves, without complaining.

    According to My Will, I Did Eat

    ,
    Several theological, interpretational problems were stirred up in the Church, preoccupying many of the youth and church servants, leading to a sort of discord, skepticism and finger-pointing. Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to attempt the role of ideological reconciliation, to preserve the peace of the Church and the soundness of teaching, "redeeming the time, because the days are evil." How do we understand our faith? Do we need to discover it? There is a vast difference between a doctrine and the explanation of the doctrine, and also between the faith of the catholic [universal] Church and the personal opinion of some Fathers. Therefore, we should return to the sources of teaching in the Church. Using these sources, this book addresses our relationship with Adam's sin, and answers the all-important question: Were we affected by his sin, or by its consequences only, that is, death and corruption, or were we not affected at all?

    Acts

    ,
    As the only record of the first thirty years of the early Church, the book known as The Acts of the Apostles, follows the ministry of the apostles, with a particular focus on St. Peter in the first half, and St. Paul in the second half. The author of the book is St. Luke the Evangelist, "the beloved physician" as St. Paul described him (Colossians 4:14), who was a companion of the apostles during several missionary trips; it was the second historical account written by St. Luke to a man named Theophilus (assumed to be a Roman officer), with the first account being the Gospel of St. Luke (after which Theophilus is presumed to have converted to Christianity).  This book, inspired by God, records for us the establishment and early growth of the Church, and relates several conversions (Ethiopian eunuch, St. Paul, and Cornelius). Without this work, we would be without an answer to "what happened next" after the gospel accounts, we would not have the context to help us understand many of the writings of St. Paul, and we would not have the benefit of seeing the Holy Spirit's work in the ministry of the apostles, as they fulfilled God's directive and theme of this book: "You shall be witnesses to Me" (Acts 1:8).

    ,
    New to America? Want to serve newcomers? Curious about the history of Coptic immigration to the U.S.A.? Trying to adapt yourself to your new environment? Coptic Orthodox Christians have been immigrating to the United States in droves over the last few decades, and their ability to adapt to their new environment has varied greatly. Bishop Youssef has incorporated years of experience observing and guiding Coptic immigrants into a book that details the history of Copts in the U.S.A., and also provides a comprehensive outlook at how Copts can adequately adapt to their new home. His Grace also shares his vision of the future of Coptic Orthodox Christianity in the land of immigration and how people can fruitfully serve those around them.
