    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is one reason the author wrote the 1 Corinthian espistle?

    • A.

      To start a new church

    • B.

      To address division in the church

    • C.

      The church was to far away to visit

    • D.

      To request a new route to Corinth

    Correct Answer
    B. To address division in the church
    Explanation
    The author wrote the 1 Corinthian epistle to address division in the church. This can be inferred from the fact that the other options do not align with the purpose of addressing division. Starting a new church, requesting a new route, or being too far away to visit does not directly relate to addressing the issue of division within the existing church. Therefore, the most logical reason for the author to write the epistle is to address this specific problem.

    As discussed in class, there are three categories of people described in chapters 2 and 3 of the 1 Corinthian espistle. Those categories are:

    The correct answer is "Natural, Carnal, and Spiritual." In chapters 2 and 3 of the 1 Corinthian epistle, the apostle Paul describes three categories of people. The "natural" category refers to those who do not have a relationship with God and are guided by their own desires. The "carnal" category refers to believers who are still influenced by their fleshly desires and have not fully surrendered to the Holy Spirit. The "spiritual" category refers to believers who are guided by the Holy Spirit and have a close relationship with God.

Paul urges them to be united and to have no divisions among them, emphasizing the importance of being of the same mind and judgment. He also mentions that there are quarrels among them, with some claiming to follow Paul, Apollos, or Cephas. This highlights the need for unity and to focus on the message of Christ rather than following different leaders.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the writer of the 1 Corinthian epistle was indeed named Saul before his encounter with Jesus Christ. Saul, who later became known as the apostle Paul, was a persecutor of Christians before he had a transformative experience on the road to Damascus. After this encounter, Saul became a devoted follower of Jesus and played a significant role in spreading the teachings of Christianity. The 1 Corinthian epistle is one of the letters written by Paul to the early Christian community in Corinth, addressing various issues and providing guidance.

Therefore, the statement that the 1 Corinthian epistle was the first letter is incorrect.
