Two Corinthians

Two Corinthians January 20, 2016

Donald Trump has been getting flack for saying “Two Corinthians” when referring to the work that is known as “Second Corinthians.” That is short for “Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians.” And to be honest, I would take someone who says “Two Corinthians” over an ignoramus who calls it the “Second Book of Corinthians” any day.

Have you ever referred to the “Book of Romans” or “Two Thessalonians”? If so, how did you learn to refer to the letters as letters, and multiple letters to the same destination by ordinal rather than cardinal numbers?
