AbstractThe article seeks to provide an answer to the question of why Paul says so little about Jesus in his letters. Paul's relative silence on Jesus' words is dealt with in the light of a socio-historical perspective. The study seeks to elucidate how Paul mitigates Jesus' seemingly radical remarks over ethical issues on marriage and the requirements of inheriting the kingdom of God in 1 Corinthians (6.9-10 and 7.10-11), so that his teaching may fit into the new Sitz im Leben of the Corinthian Christian community. © 2002 Cambridge University Press.
