The apostle Paul had his hands full with the Corinthian church. Not only did they face still challenges from without but even more from within their budding congregation. Here was a raucous commercial and religious hub of a city located on a Greek isthmus known for its reputation as a favorite sailor’s port. The licentiousness and moral degradation demanded a tough love approach by the great Apostle. The common practices of Corinthian society presented the new Christians Paul converted and taught with too many options to stray from the strict teachings of Christ.
Yet within this letter where Paul has to rebuke long-standing Gentile practices that now have continued too long without questioning, we discover perhaps the most well-loved and well-known New Testament text outside the Sermon on the Mount: I Cor. chapter 13, is a hymn to love and an equally powerful description for what it is not.
