The ‘Anonymous’ Celebrity Preacher: What do you think?


 
“With him [Titus] we are sending the brother who is famous among all the churches for his preaching of the gospel” ( 2 Corinthians 8: 18).

Some say this brother was Luke who accompanied Paul in most of his missionary journeys.  Some have supposed that it was Mark, others that it was Silas or Barnabas.  But the identity of the famous brother is unknown.  This celebrity preacher remains anonymous (to the reader) because the bible does not make it particularly known who this person is.  Whoever the person was he was well known to the Corinthians, as indicated by what Paul says of him in this place.

But isn’t it awkwardly beautiful that his identity is unknown?  At the end of the day, does it really matter that his identity is unknown for his preaching of the Gospel?  Doesn’t that bring God more glory?

What do you all think?  Any thoughts?  Use the comment box below.

  2. The essential thing is that the famous speaker was used by the Lord to His greater glory. But to be honest I really don`t think the fame matters as long as we are doing His will whether you are well-known or not.
