David G. Horrell is Professor of New Testament at the University of Exeter in :   First Corinthians provides a unique glimpse info the life of a young Christian community in a Greco-Roman environment during the early decades of emerging Christianity.

Using 1 Corinthians together with other first-century literary and non-literary sources, it is argued that one of Paul's major concerns with the church in Corinth is the extent to which significant members in the church were employing secular categories and perceptions of leadership in the Christian community.

this updated edition also seeks to reflect on recent developments in 1 Corinthians Cited by: Paul also wrote two of his epistles to the Christian community at Corinth, the First Epistle to the Corinthians and the Second Epistle to the Corinthians. The first Epistle reflects the difficulties of maintaining a Christian community in such a cosmopolitan city.

“In 1 Cor. Paul mentions another Corinthian convert who was baptized by him personally, Crispus by name. Luke shows us who this Crispus was--no less than the ruler of the synagogue. He and his family evidently followed Paul on his departure from the synagogue, and joined the new Christian community in Corinth.” Bruce, p.

Scandals, immoralities and irregularities were creeping into the church at Corinth. Paul wrote this book to call Christians back to what fellowship with Jesus Christ can mean, declaring the great spiritual values which make Christian faith a living vital thing.

The church at Corinth had many problems. Some simple kindness would have helped. Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthians, now lost, in the fall of 50 CE. The Corinthians pushed back quite hard. They wrote a reply to Paul with a number of questions. In the spring of 51 CE he wrote a long letter back, our 1 Corinthians.

Corinth is well known to readers of the Bible because of its importance in the missionary activity of the apostle Paul: he visited Corinth at least three times, founded Christian assemblies there, and wrote at least four letters to Christians in Corinth (besides Corinthians, note the other letters mentioned in 1Cor and 2Cor2Cor ).The city lies at an important trading position.

Christianity at Corinth thus does not appear to have been particularly sectarian or subversive. Indeed, the church at Corinth was much too cozy with the dominant culture for Paul’s liking.

Indeed, the church at Corinth was much too cozy with the dominant culture for Paul’s liking. The Christians at Corinth were very much at risk in endorsing syncretism between these pagan cults with Christianity. Their worldview was shaped by pagan culture and Paul was tasked to bring a Christological center to the Corinthian church with the Gospel and correct doctrine.

Much effort has gone into reconstructing Christianity at Corinth; more recently, attention has focused on the Corinthian community itself. The scholarly picture of the Corinthian Christians throughout the period of modern interpretation has been far from constant, and. Part one, “Extracts from the History of Scholarship on Christianity at Corinth,” begins with the view of F.

Baur (–) that the “groups at Corinth were essentially divided along a single fault line, between Peter and Paul, with the Apollos group on Paul’s side and the Christ group on Peter’s” (p. 51).Location: Louisville. Paul countered with the Christian teaching of the dignity of the body.

Paul’s Relation to the Church in Corinth. Paul’s first visit to Corinth was on his second missionary journey (Acts ff.). His previous experience in the cities of Greece had given him little basis to anticipate a warm reception in Corinth.

For Christians, Corinth is well known from the two letters of Saint Paul in the New Testament, First and Second Corinthians. Corinth is also mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles as part of the Paul the Apostle 's missionary travels. In addition, the second book of Pausanias ' Description of Capital: Corinth.
