FIRST CORINTHIANS I (NT458)
PROBLEMS IN THE FIRST CENTURY CHURCH
Paul's letters to the church at Corinth form the basis for a study of vital ethical and theological problems and questions in the first century Christian community. In this course, we will study the problems and questions in the first six chapters, in order to find the enduring spiritual principles which come down to us through their solutions. Chapter-by-chapter, we will examine such matters as Divisions in the Church, Judging, Moral Standards,and Sexual Morality. Special attention will be focused upon the theological foundation from which these issues are resolved.
