The First Epistle of St. Paul to the Corinthians
St. Paul, having planted the faithful in Corinth, where he had preached
a year and a half and converted a great many, went to Ephesus. After being
there three years, he wrote this first Epistle to the Corinthians and sent
it by the same persons, Stephanus, Fortunatus and Achaicus, who had
brought their letter to him. It was written about twenty-four years after
our Lord's Ascension and contains several matters appertaining to faith
and morals and also to ecclesiastical discipline.
