Nothing in the language or style of 6:14‐7:1 constitutes a convincing argument against Pauline authenticity. In terms of both vocabulary and content, the whole interrelated complex of ideas is best paralleled in the Hellenistic Judaism represented by Philo. From this perspective apistoi is best translated as ‘faithless’ and understood to be an allusion to the ‘unbelieving’ side of the believers at Corinth.

Keywords:   2 Cor 6:14‐7:1, authenticity, Philo, apistoi, faithless
