Bema of Apostle Paul - Corinth

The moving Hymn to Love by Apostle Paul is among the most beautiful texts of Christianity and is part of his famous 1st Epistle to the Corinthians.

Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; hears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails”.

Apostle Paul conveyed the faith to Jesus to the ancient city of Corinth in the most emphatic of ways, with a text that still inspires and moves people. According to the tradition of our church, Paul addressed the Corinthians from the bema of the Ancient Agora in Corinth, where the officials were placed so that citizens could hear them when they spoke to them.
