During my viva (doctoral examination), Dr. Ernst Bammel said that I had failed to mention the only monograph written on 3 Cor.   I had actually asked my supervisor about this book and he said that I needn’t bother since it was pre-critical and by a pastor.  When it became necessary for me to take Rinck into account, Prof. Rordorf sent me a copy of K. Pink “Die Pseudopaulinische Briefe”, Biblica 6 (1925) 68-78, not thinking that I could be serious about needing this 1823 book.  When I told him that actually needed the 1823 monograph,  he kindly tracked it down for me in the Stadtbibliothek, Zurich.  Rinck made many arguments that 3 Corinthians was an authentic epistle.  It’s really too bad that he didn’t have the Papyrus Bodmer Greek text; he could have made an much stronger case for authenticity.
