Paul addresses his readers as God's Temple in his Letters to the Corinthians, which are among the earliest documents of Christianity.

Previous theories (spiritualisation, substitution, comparative religions approach) cannot stand in view of the analysis of the broader historical context as well as reconsideration of Paul's theological perspective.
