1 Corinthians 1_2

1 Corinthians 1:2

Church The Greek word used here, ekklēsia, refers to a gathering of people, not a building; here, it references the gathering of Christ followers in Corinth.

Corinth Located on the coast of Greece, Corinth was a major metropolis in Paul’s day.

Sanctified The process of a believer becoming more like Christ in thought and action.

Saints The Greek term used here, hagioi, refers to those who have been set apart as God’s people.

Lord Paul uses the Greek word kyrios here to show Jesus’ rightful reign and authority over all things and people.
