Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the influence of Pauls Jewish background in 1 Corinthians. It considers agreed upon Jewish influence within 1 Corinthians in the form of citations and allusions. There are eighteen such examples within 1 Corinthians that have been identified in major studies on Pauls use of Scripture. Commentaries as well as studies that examine First Corinthians exegetically or in relation to the Greco-Roman background generally agree on the presence of these Jewish references. After each reference is identified, the chapter explores how that Jewish influence extends within the text that surrounds the citation or allusion. From the beginning of 1 Corinthians, Jewish elements can be found within Pauls instruction. The chapter presents influence of eighteen generally agreed upon Jewish citations and allusions. It concludes that agreed upon Jewish citations and allusions influence this letter substantially, exerting far more influence than just their presence in four percent of the letter.

Keywords: 1 Corinthians; Greco-Roman background; Jewish citations
