Chapter Summary

The 1a Clementis fights against the disorder in the church of Corinth caused by the dismission of some officers. Its author stresses over and again the fact that one should not transgress the appointed rule, but do everything in its own order. The incidents in Corinth, however, do not form the contents of this letter; they are no more than the motive. They reveal that there is something wrong in this church and the letter from Rome tries to give a general instruction on the way in which the Christians have to behave themselves. It is an entreaty for peace and concord in a general tone. The author draws attention to the peace and benefits given by God the Creator. The whole universe moves around in good order according to God's command, from which he takes the lesson that it should be the same in the Church.

Keywords: 1a Clementis; Corinth; God's command
