Todays writing is from a letter to the Corinthians written by Paul. Some of you once were Corinthians. Corinth derives its name from Ancient Corinth, a city-state of antiquity. Corinth is known to have civilization from before 3000 BC. making it about 5000 years old. In ancient times a healthy average size city could have anywhere from 10,000 – 20,000 people.
Today Corinth has a population of 30,176. Lets reduce that down to about an average of 20,000 people over its life. Lets call that average of 20,000 people (P) . Now lets assume the average life span of people in Corinth is 80 years. Over a period of of 5,000 years that is 62.5 lifetimes per person. Now if we multiply 20,000 people living 80 years over 62.5 lifetimes we have 1,250, 000 souls more or less who have passed through Corinth over 5000 years. Not bad for a little city. For argument we can use 10,000 people as the average and still arrive to an impressive number. Everyone will get a chance to live in Corinth.
Considering the size of the planet this should help you to accept the fact that many of us have experienced living in many countries more than once through history. You must be born again.
About the 8th century BC Corinth began to develop as a commercial center. It may at one time been been much larger and more populace than what is described. If you study its location and logistics, the area of Corinth is situated in an ideal setting fit to provide for many people. There are lots of areas like Corinth that offer a nice lifestyle.
Letter to the Corinthians written by Paul.
13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
