Yung Suk Kim takes up the language of body that infuses 1 Corinthians, Pauls most complicated letter, and the letter that provides us the most information, and poses the sharpest questions, about social realities in the early church. Kim argues against the view that in speaking of the church as Christs body Paul seeks to emphasize unity and the social boundary.

Against the conventional rhetoric of the body politic in Greco-Roman philosophy, Kim argues that Paul seeks rather to nourish the vitality of a diverse community and to criticize the ideology of a powerful in-group in Corinth, a message of particular importance for contemporary global Christianity.
