1 3 . Ma perché Paolo era inquieto a proposito di Tito? (Osserviamo, fra paren tesi, che Tito è chiamato «fratello» come già Timoteo in 1 , 1 ). Un' ipotesi possibile è che Paolo fosse inquieto per timore che Tito portasse con sé molto denaro: la parte già raccolta a Corinto della colletta per i poveri della Giudea. I briganti non erano rari a quei tempi . Ma è più probabi le, come vedremo, che la preoccupazione di Paolo si riferisse all ' esito della visita di Tito alla comunità: come era stato accolto (essendo amico e collaboratore di Paolo) e che atteggiamento avevano adesso i corinzi verso il loro apostolo.
3-7) porta Paolo a citare una concreta esperien za, la prova che lo ha colpito in Asia: «siamo stati molto provati, al di là delle nostre forze, tanto da farci dispera re perfino della vita» (v. 8). Non sappiamo a che cosa allude Paolo: forse al tentativo di linci aggio subito a Efeso (Atti 19,23-4 1 ) , dopo il quale dovette andarsene (Atti 20, 1 ) senza neppure poter ripassare da quella città per salutare i suoi collaboratori (Atti 20, 17)? Oppure all' o scuro episodio menzionato in I Corinzi 1 5 ,32 («Se soltan to per fini umani ho lottato con le belve a Efeso .
Senza dubbio, l ' ipotesi più probabile è quella che abbiamo chiamato «pessimistica». Quarant' anni dopo, la comunità cristiana di Roma, scrivendo ai corinzi per mano di Clemente Romano, fa loro questo rimprovero: « È turpe, carissimi, e indegno della vita in Cristo, sentire che la chiesa di Corinto, molto salda e antica, per una o due persone si è ribellata ai presbiteri» (l di Clemente ai cori n34 ti, 47,6). Si ripeteva, dopo quarant' anni, quel che era accaduto con Paolo? QUAL È IL VOLTO DELLA COMUNITÀ DI CORINTO CHE SI RIFLETTE NELLA SECONDA EPISTOLA?
