dc.description.abstractThere is a great motive and background which prepared St. Paul for writing to the Corinthians. The first letter to the Corinthians was written near Easter time, between the years 54 and 57 A.D., before the end of the two and a half years at Ephesus, during his third missionary voyage, when a Corinthian delegation arrived to ask Paul certain questions (cf. 1 Cor 5:7ff; 16:5-17 and Acts 19:21). He had also received news from Apollos and from Chloe' s household (cf. 1 Cor 1: 11; 16:12 and Acts 18:27ff). There were then many divisions in the community, a major scandal of incest was present, and other problems. Paul in the letter answers to these problems with regards to marriage, the licitness of eating meat of animals sacrificed to the idols, the behaviour of women in the assemblies and above all to the eschatological and soteriological issues which are the subject of this study.en_GB
