What Paul Has in Mind when he uses "the Body of Christ"

“The same dynamics and mechanics that were expected to operate within the individual body provided the political rhetoric for the operation of the body politic; and just as there were conflicting ideologies of the individual body, so there were conflicting views of the proper dynamics of the individual body, so there were conflicting views of the proper dynamics of the social body.  Paul’s wish to convince the Corinthian church of the validity of his own theological and ethical opinions would necessitate both appropriating and modifying their assumptions regarding the body–especially of their bodies and their communal body." Cited from Dale B. Martin, Corinthian Body, (New Haven/London: Yale University Press, 1995), 37.
