Overview Through The Book
In this episode, seminary professor/Bible teacher David Klingler talks us through an overview of the book of 1 Corinthians. The gospel was first preached in Corinth on Paul’s second missionary journey while he was working with Aquila and Priscilla making tents. The city boasted an outdoor arena that held 20,000 people and hosted athletic games second only to the Olympics! Paul’s preaching soon experienced opposition; however, the Lord was with him, and he remained in one of the most immoral cities of his time, equipping the church. Christ's message of hope impacted this major metropolitan city, clashing with the culture's morals through the church's witness. However, the Corinthians' immaturity in their faith would lead to division and self-centeredness. Paul’s prayer was that they would remain steadfast in the unity of Christ and persevere with him in the exalting of Christ. Join us as we journey through Paul’s letter to the Corinthians!
