A-Z: Books of the Bible: 1 Corinthians


NT epistle (letter)


1 and 2 Corinthians: The church in Corinth was Paul's most troublesome ' hence these two long letters. In 1 Corinthians Paul deals with a number of issues raised by the Corinthians themselves e.g. marriage, food offered to idols. He also explains deeper matters like the nature of true wisdom and the primacy of love (Ch 13). In Ch 15 he sets out his understanding of the resurrection against the Corinthians' scepticism. 2 Corinthians is a very personal letter in which Paul expresses his intense anxiety about the church and its acceptance of his apostleship. He has harsh things to say about those whom he regards as false apostles.
