Keys to First Corinthians

Jerome Murphy‐O'Connor

Oxford University Press

After a discussion of the validity of the methodology normally used to determine interpolations, i.e. additions to a text after it had left its author's hands, the chapter passes in review thirteen passages in 1 Cor, which various authors have suggested were interpolations. Only 1 Cor 4: 6 and 1 Cor 14: 34–35 are accepted as post‐Pauline additions. 1 Cor 7: 29–31 is more likely to be Paul's citation of a formed apocalyptic tradition similar to 6 Ezra 16: 41–45 than an interpolation. It is entirely probable that 1 Cor 15: 56 is an embryonic articulation of an insight which Paul developed fully only several years later in writing Romans.

Keywords:   interpolation, addition, methodology, 1 Corinthians, Romans
