Description

Although cosmology is not of primary interest in Paul’s epistles to the Corinthians, he sporadically quotes from the Mosaic creational account to support his theological expositions and ethical exhortations. Especially in addressing issues relating to family and sexual immorality, worship and idolatry, and the bodily resurrection, creation provides the foundation on which Paul further constructs his argument. This paper examines when, how, and why Paul makes use of creation in his argument. In addition, it will allow the reader to draw conclusions regarding Paul’s perception of the origin of the cosmos.
