    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:12

    ¶ Cuando vine a Troas por el Evangelio del Cristo, aunque me fue abierta puerta en el Seor,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 2:12

    Verse 12. When I came to Troas] After having written the former
    epistle, and not having heard what effect it had produced on your minds; though the Lord had opened me a particular door to preach the Gospel, in which I so especially rejoice and glory;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Furthermore, when I came to Troas , etc..] The
    apostle proceeds, in this latter part of the chapter, to take notice of and remove the charge of ostentation and insincerity in preaching the Gospel, and hints at other reasons of his not coming to Corinth; particularly that he took a journey to Troas, expecting to meet with Titus there, who was to give him an account of the affairs of the church at Corinth, which he was desirous of knowing before he went thither; but missing of Titus, is uneasy, and goes for Macedonia; though he was first detained awhile at Troas, having a good opportunity of preaching the Gospel there, with a prospect of success.

    Troas was a city of the lesser Asia near the Hellespont, formerly called Troy; of Paul's being at this place more than once, (see 2 Timothy 4:13 Acts 16:7,8 20:6), and of this place (see Gill on Acts 16:8), and of the church there, (see Gill on Acts 20:7). Hither he came, to preach Christ's Gospel ; that Gospel, of which Christ is both the author and subject; and is no other than the good news and glad tidings of peace, pardon, righteousness, life, and salvation, by a crucified Jesus; this was his work and business; his heart was in it, he took delight in this service, and it was what he pursued in every place wherever he came; and in this place he had much encouragement; for he adds, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord ; such an one as was opened to him at Ephesus, ( 1 Corinthians 16:9); he had a good opportunity of preaching the Gospel to many souls, many were inclined to attend his ministry, from whence he conceived great hopes of doing good; a door of utterance was given to him to preach the Gospel boldly and freely, and a door of entrance for the Gospel to pass into their hearts: all which was not of men, but of the Lord; who has the key of David, who opens and no man shuts, shuts and no man opens.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-17 - A believer's triumphs are all in Christ. To him be the praise and glor of all, while the success of the gospel is a good reason for Christian's joy and rejoicing. In ancient triumphs, abundance of perfumes and sweet odours were used; so the name and salvation of Jesus, as ointment poured out, was a sweet savour diffused in ever place. Unto some, the gospel is a savour of death unto death. The reject it to their ruin. Unto others, the gospel is a savour of lif unto life: as it quickened them at first when they were dead in trespasses and sins, so it makes them more lively, and will end in eternal life. Observe the awful impressions this matter made upon the apostle, and should also make upon us. The work is great, and of ourselves we have no strength at all; all our sufficiency is of God But what we do in religion, unless it is done in sincerity, as in the sight of God, is not of God, does not come from him, and will not reac to him. May we carefully watch ourselves in this matter; and seek the testimony of our consciences, under the teaching of the Holy Spirit that as of sincerity, so speak we in Christ and of Christ __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12. I came to Troas. Bengel remarks: "The
    whole epistle is an itinerary." The fact is another illustration of the strong personal feeling which marks the letter. "The very stages of his journey are impressed upon it; the troubles at Ephesus, the repose at Troas, the anxiety and consolation of Macedonia, the prospect of moving to Corinth."

    Troas. The full name of the city was Alexandria Troas. It was founded by Antigonos, one of the successors of Alexander the Great, and originally called by him Antigonia Troas. It was finished by Lysimachus, another of Alexander's generals, and called by him Alexandria Troas. It stood upon the seashore, about four miles from ancient Troy, and six miles south of the entrance to the Hellespont. It was, for many centuries, the key of the traffic between Europe and Asia, having an artificial port consisting of two basins. Its ruins, with their immense arches and great columns of granite, indicate a city of much splendor. The Romans had a peculiar interest in it, connected with the tradition of their own origin from Troy; and the jus Italicum was accorded it by Augustus, by which its territory enjoyed the same immunity from taxation which attached to land in Italy. Both Julius Caesar and Constantine conceived the design of making it a capital. The ruins enclose a circuit of several miles, and include a vast gymnasium, a stadium, a theatre, and an aqueduct The Turks call it "Old Constantinople." The harbor is now blocked up.

    A door. See on 1 Cor. xvi. 9.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:12 {To Troas} (eis ten trwiada). Luke does not mention this stop at Troas on the way from Ephesus to Macedonia (#Ac 20:1f.), though he does mention two other visits there (#Ac 16:8; 20:6). {When a door was opened unto me} (quras moi anewigmenes). Genitive absolute with second perfect passive participle of anoignumi. Paul used this very metaphor in #1Co 16:9. He will use it again in #Col 4:3. Here was an open door that he could not enter.
