Corinthians, Letters to the

Resource Toolbox

Corinth was an important port in the Roman province of Achaia in the south of Greece. It was a lively commercial centre, and was well known for its colourful lifestyle and low moral standards (see CORINTH). Paul stayed in Corinth for eighteen months during his second missionary journey and established a church there (Acts 18:1-21). Since many of the people who made up the church came from a background of vice and immorality (cf. 1 Corinthians 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11), it is not surprising that problems arose in the church.
