Keys to First Corinthians

The variety of translations is the result of a failure to translate the order of the Greek as it stands, because this would make Paul say that the Corinthian had committed incest precisely ‘in the name of the Lord Jesus.’ Nonetheless this is precisely what the Corinthians approved, because from their childish perspective such behaviour, which was condemned by Jews and pagans, made the Christian community ‘different’ in the sense that Paul desired.

Keywords:   1 Cor 5: 3‐5, Greek translation, incest, difference
