Letters of Paul

First Letter to the Corinthians

The Letters of Saint Paul
Greek text on papyrus c.AD 180-200 Egypt
CB BP II (P46) f.38r

Though cited as two separate letters, 1 and 2 Corinthians, the original letters are more likely to have been shorter notes written by Paul to the Christians of the city in the years immediately after his visit (c.AD 50-51). They were probably assembled in their current form after Paul's death when his Letters were copied for other Christian centres.
