Mark Taylor’s commentary on 1 Corinthians looks at Paul’s missionary journey to Corinth where he planted a church and nurtured the new believers for approximately 18 months. Taylor pays careful attention to the nuances of the English translation (NIV), the Greek text, and the units of meaning that are vital to interpreting this letter. He presents with clarity the range of scholarly opinion regarding the issues in 1 Corinthians and then makes a case for his own views.
