The paper briefly discusses the author, the circumstances and the historical period surrounding the writing of the letter, the culture of the age, the main themes and characters mentioned by Paul in his epistle (and why they are important), the "then and there" meaning of the text, the "here and now" meaning as we read it in the twenty-first century, and - not least of all - what impact this excerpt from the New Testament has had upon this writer. In the final analysis, the paper concludes that Paul's letter captures the spirit of his time, the pressures under which he and the church labored, the high expectations all Christians were (and are) expected to satisfy, and - most of all - the letter is a didactic bit of prose shedding light on what true Christian leadership is.
