2 Corinthians 1:5
5 For even as the 1asufferings of 2the Christ abound unto us, so through 2the Christ our comfort also abounds.
52 The Christ here is a designation of the condition of Christ; it is not a name (Darby). Here it refers to the suffering Christ, who suffered afflictions for His Body according to God's will. The apostles participated in the sufferings of such a Christ, and through such a Christ they received comfort.
