Here he discusses First Corinthians, the seventh book of the New Testament. He describes the context of Paul’s journeys and the church at the city of Corinth. Paul wrote his epistles to Corinth in order to address concerns he had with what he saw as problems with their church. This is an engaging lesson on Paul’s principles.
For Paul, Corinth was nothing but trouble. In the winter of A.D. 54, a delegation from Corinth arrives in Ephesus to meet with Paul. They inform Paul that the church in Corinth has (1) developed factions and divisions among the believers, and that (2) believers are suing one another in the secular courts, and that (3) rampant sexual immorality is spreading throughout the church. In 1 Corinthians Paul addresses each of these issues, and then in chapter seven, he goes on to address a series of questions presented to him in a letter delivered by the delegation. Paul’s responses are blunt and not particularly kind: he tells the people of Corinth to stop being such big babies and to “grow up”! Listen to Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he explores Paul’s response to a church rife with rebellion, division, immorality, and gross misuses of God’s gifts to his people.

If you could sum up 1 Corinthians in three words, what would they be?

Dr Bill Greasy is very good on what he does and explains they history and why Paul wrote what he wrote.

Talk About Church Leadership !
Who would have decided to found a church in a "Sin City" like no other ? Paul did. Pastors and Priests of today are WAY squeamish and sensitive and would have avoided Corinth like the plague. Paul's church here is trying to divide itself daily, each called the other more righteous, each claiming they have the greater "spiritual gift", calling Paul himself an imposter and a thief of the church money ! Yet Paul and other leaders managed to keep the church alive in the body of Christ. A Great lesson in Leadership in this Epistle ! And who narrates this best today? Dr Bill Creasy, as always !
