Paul wrote 1 Corinthians because the congregation faced a series of problems, including the danger of splintering into factions and even lapsing into paganism. Other problems plagued the Corinthians as well. Paul’s letter provided clear advice. The longest chapter, chapter 15, has become one of the most treasured, because it trumpets the victory of Christ’s resurrection from the dead.
