This course, is an in-depth study of Paul’s first Epistle to Corinth, one of the most important and practical books of the New Testament.
This unique epistle contains the most complete biblical teaching in the entire New Testament on the following important subjects:
Disunity in the Church (1 Cor. 1-2), the Judgment Seat of Christ (1 Cor. 3), Church Discipline (1 Cor. 5), Marriage and Divorce (1 Cor. 7), the Believer’s Relationship with Idols (1 Cor. 7, 10), the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 11), Spiritual Gifts (1 Cor. 12-14), Love (1 Cor. 13), and the Resurrection (1 Cor. 15).
1 Corinthians should be viewed as a missionary manual in that it deals with a wide variety of doctrines and practices that arise in the context of church planting. Consider, for example, 1 Cor. 9:19-23, where Paul carefully explains the difference between giving up one’s liberty so as not to cause unnecessary offense to the gospel and going beyond this to doing something that is unlawful in this pursuit. It is right, for instance, to adopt a certain type of dress that is worn in the culture in which one is preaching the gospel, but it is not right to adopt any type of dress that goes against the moral standards of the Bible.
Paul bared his soul more in his letters to the church at Corinth than in any others and gives many details of his life, ministry, and revelations that are found nowhere else.
