The notation at the end of I Corinthians indicating that Paul wrote this epistle from Philippi conflicts with the internal evidence. Paul’s words in I Corinthians 16:7-8 show that he was in Ephesus when he wrote this epistle: “For at this time I will not stop to see you, but I hope at some future time to stay with you, if the Lord permits. But I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost.” Furthermore, Paul wrote, “The churches in Asia salute you,” confirming that he wrote this epistle from Asia and not from Philippi. Therefore, the notation at the end of the epistle, which was a later addition to the Greek text, is apparently incorrect.
