2 Corinthians 2:15 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
A sweet savor of Christ (Χριστοῦ εὐωδία)
Compare Ephesians 5:2; Philippians 4:18. As so often in Paul's writings, the figure shifts; the apostolic teachers themselves being represented as an odor, their Christian personality redolent of Christ. It is not merely a sweet odor produced by Christ, but Christ Himself is the savor which exhales in their character and work.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
and you offer to the LORD from the herd or from the flock a food offering or a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to fulfill a vow or as a freewill offering or at your appointed feasts, to make a pleasing aroma to the LORD,
Song of Solomon 1:3
your anointing oils are fragrant; your name is oil poured out; therefore virgins love you.
As a pleasing aroma I will accept you, when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered. And I will manifest my holiness among you in the sight of the nations.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
2 Corinthians 4:3
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God.
