letter of Paul to the church which he had founded at Corinth in Greece
was not apparently the first he had written to his flock there, but only
the first which because of its length and importance was preserved and
widely circulated through the Christian Church. It seems to have been
written from Ephesus while Paul was teaching there, in the spring of the
year 56, and thus belongs to about the same period as "Romans." Its
theme is the controversies which had arisen among the Corinthians, and
their tendency to lapse into their old Grecian ways of idle pleasure and
philosophizing, by which some of them had even come to argue against the
Resurrection. This doctrine Paul gloriously reasserts.
