Through Summer 2022 we are taking a look at 1 Corinthians, the first letter Paul wrote to the Christians in Corinth.
The Corinthian church was encountering some difficult problems, mostly of their own making.
Paul writes to explain what a church is about, based on the fundamental topic of the gospel -
the good news of Jesus Christ. Rather than studying the letter chapter by chapter, our studies
will focus on two different aspects of Paul's message.
The foundational good news of the Gospel
This good news of the Gospel is founded upon the cross of Jesus and is built up by God's wisdom
dispensed through the Holy Spirit, leading to the assurance of future resurrection.

|The message of the cross
|God's wisdom revealed
|Ultimate hope in resurrection
|15:1-8, 12-20, 50-58
The Church is the embodiment of the Gospel
The Church is the body of Christ on earth and so has the responsibility of proclaiming the
good news of the Gospel. The most compelling way to demonstrate the good news is in the daily
life of the Church and its members. However this is often a demanding ask...
|The church is a building site
|Our rights are superceded
|Temptation and resistance
|The Lord’s Supper
|Missing - sorry!
|Unity in diversity
|Love qualifies the gifts
|Responsibility for others
