A Study of 1 Corinthians

Arrogance

Division

Immorality

Dysfunctional Families

Courtroom Brawls

Chaotic Worship

This was the Corinthian church. 

It existed in a city that was booming with commerce and culture… as well as corruption. How could this church resist assimilation back into their former way of life in the world? Only by adopting the cruciform way of Jesus through the transforming power of His gospel. 


SERMON REVIEW

 

Part 1 The Church in Union with ChristKevin Rogers. The church must live in light of the fact that it is united to Christ.

Part 2 –  Division Robin Boisvert. When we want what we want more than what God wants, divisions occur. The way to heal divisions is by believers coming under the power of God displayed at the cross by a crucified Messiah.

 


HELPFUL RESOURCES

1 Corinthians For You, Andrew Wilson – As Andrew Wilson walks through this compelling, challenging epistle, you’ll see how grace looks in every Christian and how it can shape every church—even a church as flawed as the Corinthian one. Helpful for personal use as well as for small group study. 

ESV Scripture Journal: 1 Corinthians – ESV Scripture Journals pair the entirety of individual books of the New Testament with lightly lined blank pages opposite each page of the biblical text, allowing readers to take extended notes or record insights and prayers directly beside corresponding passages of Scripture.

The Bible Project Video and Overview – The Bible Project creates videos and other media to help people experience the Bible as a unified story that leads to Jesus. Check out their overview video to get oriented to 1 Corinthians and its major themes.
