Corinth in ancient Greece was quite a city: something like New York with so many people from countries far away. It was so busy, since it was on a little part of land called an isthmus that separated two bodies of water. Merchants would moor their boats on the east side, then carry the cargo across land, a put it on another boat on the other side to continue the journey going west.
Good and bad were mixed in that city. This is what Paul faced when he wanted to encourage the new Christians in this pagan city to stick together and find God with them in each other.
