First Corinthians is a letter in every sense of the term. It was part of an ongoing correspondence between Paul and thosehome he had evangelized in the provincial capital of Achaia. It followed the usual conventions adopted by letter-writers in the Hellenistic world. It is a product of Hellenistic culture, Christian faith, and Paul's pastoral care for brothers and sisters in Corinth. The apostle believes that they were called to be God's holy people. His letter spells out for them the implications of their call to holiness.
This series presents fresh translations and modern expositions of all the books of the New Testament. Written by an international team of Catholic biblical scholars, it is intended for biblical professionals, graduate students, theologians, clergy, and religious educators. The volumes present basic introductory information and close exposition, with each author adopting a specific methodology while maintaining a focus on the issues raised by the New Testament compositions themselves.
