The First Epistle to the Corinthians (better known as 1st Corinthians) is Paul's first letter (or epistle) to the people who were living in the Greek city of Corinth.
In the letter, Paul writes to the Corinthians about:
- The division among themselves as to who each of them are following.
- Sexual immorality, such as a member of the Corinthian church who is having improper relations with his stepmother.
- Having lawsuits among themselves being brought before secular judges.
- Eating food sacrificed to idols, telling the Corinthians not to do things that would cause their fellow brothers and sisters to stumble in their faith.
- Improper worship practices among the men and women.
- Improper practice of the Lord's Supper.
- Improper use of spiritual gifts within the congregation.
- The resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, and how believers in Christ will also be resurrected at His Coming.
