1 Corinthians Review
This past Sunday, we looked back on all of 1 Corinthians and our theme of Strong Church. We've covered a lot of ground this year, and revisited Paul's opening words in 1 Corinthians 1.4-9, in order to summarize all we've learned through this series.
Questions for Review:
1. What does Paul emphasize in the first 9 verses of his letter to the Corinthians? How does that compare or contrast to the rest of the letter?
2. Why do you think Paul starts his letter with so much emphasis on Jesus and all that the Corinthians have in Him? Is he just softening them for the blows they get in the rest of the letter?
3. Throughout the letter, at every point in which Paul gives correction, he does so with a clear connection back to Jesus and the themes of 1 Corinthians 1.1-9. What does this imply that he's trying to do in this letter?
4. Take some time to refresh yourself on the 5 sections of 1 Corinthians. What section was most striking to you this year? Where have you been most challenged or encouraged? How have you grown through this year-long series?
