NEAR THE TIME OF CHRIST, THERE ONCE EXISTED A METROPOLIS CITY, WHICH WAS A TRADE CENTRE FOR THE THEN KNOWN WORLD. This city of wealth was once destroyed in 146 B.C., and its treasures carried off to Rome. But Julius Caesar restored it a hundred years later, and the Roman colony flourished so much that it soon became one of the most prominent centres in Greece. Some would say that in the 2nd century it was the richest city in Greece.
This city was a city of wealth, of luxury and of immorality. It seemed to have one quality that marked it as a commercial hot spot of its day, for it is said that “Jews flocked to it.” That city was ancient Corinth, the chief city in the Roman Province of Achaia. This is the city that Paul spent at least a year and one-half preaching the Gospel and encountering the full force and fury of the “Jews.”
Times does not seem to change much do they? The same problem is facing most of the major cities in America today. The commercial cities we have in the United States are fast becoming breeding cesspools of corruption and all manner of evil. Could this be caused by a “Jewish” society and their influence? Many wonder!
