Details

The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of Paul’s greatest evangelistic successes. Yet despite Paul’s having founded the church there, it was full of contention and strife. Dissension ran the gamut from questions about leadership to incest. Some believers were taking fellow Christians to court. There were questions about marriage, celibacy, food offered to idols, public worship and spiritual gifts. In response Paul offered to them, and to us, some of his most profound thinking on the body of Christ, love and the resurrection. Leon Morris, with his characteristic clarity and pastoral heart, sets the issues before us and offers perspectives on the letter’s perennial relevance.
