This chapter highlights judicial rhetoric which is sometimes called “forensic” oratory, and is primarily engaged by lawyers and law courts during trials. The main purpose of this judicial rhetoric is a speech or writing that considers the justice or injustice of a certain charge or accusation. The chapter describes the Second Corinthians and its relation to the notion of forensic rhetoric. The chapter then looks at the important role of the Pauline epistles in the Second Corinthians and the connection between these epistles and the oration.

Keywords:   judicial rhetoric, forensic oratory, law courts, Second Corinthians, Pauline epistles, justice
