Abstract:

This commentary is basically explanatory, or expository. Even to the pagan world, Corinth was known for its moral corruption, so much so that in classical Greek corinthiazesthai ("to behave like a Corinthian") came to represent gross immorality and drunken debauchery. The most serious problem of the Corinthian church was in not detaching themselves from the worldly ways of the society around them. Like many Christians today, the Corinthian believers had great difficulty in not mimicking the unbelieving and corrupt society around them. They usually managed to stay a little higher than the world morally, but they were moving downward, in the same direction as the world. Yet they lacked no spiritual resources (1:5-7) and had great potential for spiritual power and blessing. Paul longed to see that potential realized. - Introduction.

This study guide takes readers on a journey through biblical texts to discover what lies beneath the surface, focusing on meaning and context, and then reflecting on the explored passage or concept. Includes probing questions that guide the reader toward application.
