Description: This study examines educational motifs in 1 Corinthians 1-4 in order to answer a question fundamental to the interpretation of 1 Corinthians: Do the opening chapters of 1 Corinthians contain a Pauline apology or a Pauline censure? The author argues that Paul characterizes the Corinthian community as an ancient school, a characterization Paul exploits both to defend himself as a good teacher and to censure the Corinthians as poor students.
Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, 1 Corinthians, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Social-Scientific Approaches
