Corinth, Christianity and Confusion
Corinth was a thriving city. It was the chief city of Greece both commercially and politically. Christianity arrived in Corinth when the Apostle hit town. Paul began preaching in the synagogue until its authorities could tolerate him no longer. The small church thus formed moved from there to a large house next door. He nurtured it for 18 months and then moved on to other ministry.
In 1 Corinthians Paul addresses some issues reported by friends from Chloe’s household and others raised by a letter from Corinth. He then requests their raising money for the Jerusalem poor. Most of these issues face the church today. The apostle instructs concerning the way back to genuine Christianity
