1 Corinthians chapter 5 verse 1

Verse 1

Now Paul moves onto his next moral issue in the Corinthian Church, That of fornication (πορνεία).  One of the members was in a relationship with his stepmother. The offence is not called adultery but fornication.  It is likely that the father had possibly died. This is forbidden under Jewish law 

Leviticus 18: 8 NASB

You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife; it is your father’s nakedness.

This is what happened.
