    Abstract:
    Journal for the Study of Paul and His Letters, 2018. While many scholars consider that Corinthian slogans are present in 1 Cor 6:12–20, this article argues that the attribution of slogans there is an unnecessary exegetical move based on unconvincing arguments. A reading of the pericope will be presented to demonstrate that slogans are unnecessary to make sense of Paul’s paraenesis. The arguments for and against each particular slogan will be evaluated. This study both consolidates the minority view held by Brian Dodd (1995) and David Garland (2003) and responds to Joseph Fitzmyer (2007) and Jerome Murphy O’Connor’s (2009) criticisms of the same.
