The Book of 1st Corinthians


Riverside 2000

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Almost from its very beginning, the church at Corinth had been plagued by intellectual and moral problems, problems that had caused Paul to have much heaviness of heart and a great concern for the well-being of the saints at Corinth. Paul had, through a short visit to the Corinthians and through a now-lost letter to the Corinthians, tried to solve the problems in the Corinthians church, but they had grown to be worse. In writing First Corinthians, Paul made a further effort to correct the errors and the wrongs which were hindering the growth and development of the Corinthian saints.

After a short introduction to First Corinthians, Paul, in 1:10-4:21, deals with the incipient divisions in the church, then he, in chapters 5 and 6, address some of the moral problems prevalent in the church, after which he, in chapters 7-14, gives instruction concerning marriage, Christian liberties, women wearing a veil in public, a proper observance of the Lord’s Supper, and the proper view and use of the Spiritual gifts. Finally, he, in chapter 15, gives the Corinthians needed instruction concerning the physical resurrection of the body of a believer.
