This Letter of St. Paul, like all of his other Letters in the New Testament, is circumstantial. It was written to respond to certain provocations and to resolve specific problems or issues that had risen in the Church of Corinth. A careful and a thoughtful study of this Letter will reveal to us the main problems which the Church encounters in her life to the present day and their most illumined solutions as presented by St. Paul, the great Apostle to the Nations.

The significance of First Corinthians is truly great because it constitutes the main historical source for the life of the earliest Christian Churches in the Gentile world with their related problems about the faith, the ideas, and the administration.
