The Access Bible New Revised Standard Bible, written and edited with first-time Bible readers in mind.

Reading Guide

The letter exhibits the standard features of a Pauline letter: opening greeting ( 1.1–3 ), thanksgiving ( 1.4–9 ), body of the letter ( 1.10–16.12 ), and benediction ( 16.13 ). Structurally, it divides into three parts. In the first section ( 1.10–4.21 ) Paul warns against divisions and quarrels, and he spells out what it means to be a “church of God” ( 1.2 ). The second section (chs. 5–6 ) deals with a case of serious sexual impropriety and internal legal disputes. The third section (chs. 7–16 ) takes up the Corinthians' questions. The repetition of “Now concerning…” ( 7.1; 8.1; 12.1; 16.1 ) suggests that Paul is taking up their concerns one by one and making a serious effort to provide thoughtful responses that would suffice until his next visit ( 11.34 ).
