The Book of 1 Corinthians
 

1 Corinthians is one of Paul's Epistles. Epistles are letters Paul wrote to Christians in the early churches.

 

1 Corinthians was written to the church that was in Corinth.

Corinth was located in Greece. It was one of the largest and most important cities in Ancient Greece.  Paul lived in Corinth for 18 months and founded the Christian church there.

About 4 years later, Paul was in Ephesus in Turkey and wrote this letter to the church in Corinth. He wrote it in about the year 57 A.D.


Paul wrote this letter because he had learned about some problems in the Corinthian church.

The letter has 2 parts.

1.  Paul rebukes the church for divisions and problems. He tells them how to deal with sin in the church.

2.  Paul answers specific questions that people in the Corinthian church have asked him.

Some of the subjects Paul writes about in 1 Corinthians are:

immoral behavior
Christians and lawsuits
marriage
singleness
Communion
spiritual gifts
resurrection
how to worship
being free in Christ

sexual immorality, lawsuits among believers, marriage and singleness, freedom in Christ, order in worship, the significance of the Lordís Supper, and the right use of spiritual gifts; he also included a profound teaching on the resurrection. - See more at: http://www.insight.org/resources/bible/first-corinthians.html#sthash.ncb1vzGo.dpuf
