Paul at Corinth
Tomorrow at Hillside we begin a four week study of 1 Corinthians. The historical importance of this book is hard to overstate. One of the apostle Paul's earliest and longest letters, the epistle shows us at mid-first century (circa 54 C.E.) what an early Gentile church was like, the problems they faced and the issues they struggled with. It provides us with the earliest account of the resurrection of Jesus and the earliest account and meaning of the Lord's Supper. If you had to pick one Pauline letter to study, this would be it.
