This work is a helpful guide to the what (content) and how (rhetoric) of Paul's calls to imitation and exemplary self-referential statements in "1 Corinthians" and resource on his self-understanding of his own authority. Paul's imitation calls in "1 Corinthians" have received much attention from biblical exegetes. However, their views on the content, nature, and rhetorical function of the imitation calls diverge, depending on how they perceive Paul's stance regarding his own authority when he explicitly or implicitly makes such calls through his self-referential statements. This study carefully examines Paul's imitation calls and self-referential statements in "1 Corinthians" 1-4 in light of the Jewish and Greco-Roman literature, and it demonstrates that Paul employs them not only as a deliberative rhetorical device to offer himself a living example to be followed but also as an apologetic device to reestablish his apostolic authority, which was at stake during his absence, and to thereby facilitate the Corinthians' imitation of him.
