This study is a verse-by-verse exposition dealing with practical instruction for the local church and individual believers. The subjects discussed include lawsuits among believers, the gift of tongues, women in the church, and marriage and divorce.
Paul’s first letter to the believers in Corinth was originally written to answer these questions. Because these problems are still prevalent in society, Paul’s letter remains an important teaching message for us today.
Are denominations Scriptural? For what sins may a person be excommunicated from the church? Is it right for a Christian to go to law against another believer? What should we think about marriage and divorce? What is the place of women in the church? What is the gift of tongues? What will the resurrection body be like?
This study will help you know the answer to these questions. This letter was originally written to answer certain questions that had arisen in the assembly at Corinth. But many of these problems are still with us and will be until the end of the age.
