Episode Synopsis:

Paul’s first Corinthian letter was written to deal with divisions in the Corinthian church. He’s received a letter from the Corinthians asking him about how to deal with the Greco-Roman pagans around them, as well as how to handle professing Christians who either did not understand, or implement the apostle’s instructions. In Ephesus, where Paul was residing, someone who had just come from Corinth passed on to Paul the news that the Corinthians had misunderstood his written response to their letter. Paul also received a delegation from the Corinthian church asking a whole series of questions, which Paul must address. The news from Corinth was disturbing. Paul’s response to this serious situation is the letter we now know as 1 Corinthians.
When you begin to summarize the content of 1 Corinthians (in order to answer the “what is in the letter question”), you notice something rather remarkable for a situational letter like this one specifically written to address divisions beginning to appear within the Corinthian congregation. Paul’s response is not to scold them (although there is a bit of exhortation), but to teach them the correct doctrine, which is then to be applied to each of the difficult situations brought to his attention. This makes for a rich theological letter in terms of doctrinal content worked out with a great deal of practical application.
Paul’s thesis statement is set out in 1 Corinthians 1:10: “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.” The two primary sources of contention which Paul must address are those typical of Greco-Roman paganism–sexual immorality and idolatry, along with the Corinthian tendency to boast about their personal accomplishments.

Paul must remind these new Christians of what he had taught them when he had been with them previously. God’s grace revealed in Christ’s death and resurrection and the gift of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit brings about an entirely different set of ethics and morality to those in Christ’s church. Love for fellow members of the family of God is to characterize the Corinthian church, not petty divisions. The divisions in Corinth must cease since the church is the body of Christ, Paul’s apostolic authority to address such matters was given to him by Christ so it is to be accepted, and Christ’s church should reflect the new creation which Jesus has brought about through his cross and resurrection.
If you take a look at any of the best known Reformed systematic theologies (say Berkhof, Bavinck, and Turretin), you will find that the number of biblical texts cited by these writers in support of major doctrines is about the same for 1 Corinthians as it is for Romans and Ephesians. The reason? Paul’s letter is packed with Trinitarian references. He speaks of calling and election as the manifestation of God’s grace as revealed in the gospel. He discusses Christ’s resurrection and ours in great detail–the most important discussion of the resurrection of the body in all the New Testament. Paul addresses numerous aspects of the Christian life, much of which is centered upon love of neighbor working itself out in the situations reported to him as the chief sign that one is truly converted and which serves as the basis of Christian ethics and morality.
1 Corinthians is theology applied to life. What is Paul’s theology? How does he apply it to the Corinthia
