Conversations with Corinth

Conversations with Corinth

(p.158) 9 Conversations with Corinth

Jerome Murphy-O'Connor

Oxford University Press

Reports on the situation at Corinth convinced Paul that the root of most of the problems lay with the Spirit-people who had misunderstood Apollos. In 1 Cor, Paul brutally attacks this group, alienating them completely. To revenge themselves on Paul, they formed an alliance with the Judaising delegation from Antioch. The presence of the latter sparked Paul’s second (unplanned) visit to Corinth, which culminated in an undignified retreat to Macedonia. There he discovered why the Judaizers had reached Corinth so quickly. They had been repudiated in Philippi and Thessalonica. Returning to Ephesus, Paul wrote the extremely delicate Severe Letter, which he sent with Titus.
