According to Acts 18:11, Paul spent a year and a half in Corinth “teaching them the Word of God”. At that time there were no New Testament writings. Therefore Paul taught from the Law, the Prophets, and the Historical Writings of the Tanakh/Old Testament. In this portion of Paul’s letter, he focused on the lessons the Corinthians should learn from Israel’s history and how to apply those lessons in their lives and in ours.

What lessons did Paul emphasize from Israel's history for the Corinthians? Paul used Israel's history as documented in the Tanakh, consisting of the Law, the Prophets, and Historical Writings, to teach the Corinthians valuable spiritual and moral lessons. By highlighting Israel's journey and experiences, Paul intended to demonstrate the importance of obedience, faith, and devotion to God. He pointed out the consequences of disobedience and the rewards of faithfulness as seen throughout Israel's history. This was crucial for the Corinthians, as it provided them a blueprint on how to live in accordance with God’s will, avoid past mistakes, and ensure their spiritual growth and resilience. Paul's teachings emphasized that the historical events of Israel were not just narratives of the past but contained enduring lessons that were applicable to their lives in Corinth and to believers universally, demonstrating the timelessness and relevance of scripture.
