Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Hodge begins his commentary on 1 Corinthians with an introduction to the geographic and political significance of the city of Corinth. In particular, he shows how the history of Corinth, its relationship to the city to Athens, and the political climate of the Roman Empire contribute to the pastoral and theological controversies which Paul aims to address.

Hodge also attends to the theological implications of Paul’s pastoral concerns for the church in Corinth—issues such as church divisions, sexual immorality, marriage and divorce, idolatry, worship, spiritual gifts, and the resurrection. More importantly, Hodge argues that 1 Corinthians has made its way into the New Testament canon because Paul’s words on these theological and pastoral issues are fit not only for his original readers, but also for the entire history of the church. This commentary on 1 Corinthians serves as an important first step toward hearing those words.

The First Epistle to the Corinthians: A Study Personal and Historical of the Date and Composition of the Epistles

  • Author: Marcus Dods
  • Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
  • Publication Date: 1891
  • Pages: 399

In this volume, Marcus Dods offers a practical exposition of 1 Corinthians, examining Paul, the Corinthians, and the culture surrounding them.

The most varied of Paul’s epistles demands in its expositor a combination of qualities which is very rarely met with. He who would read it aright from beginning to end must be theologian, casuist, and historian all in one; he must be equally at home in the ancient and the modern Church, in ancient and in modern life. There is probably no man living in whom these characters are more at one than Dr. Dods . . .

This is an interesting book, not merely in respect of its professed object, but also as giving the reader a glimpse into a scholar’s workshop.
