I CORINTHIANS Date A.D. 55-57
The First Book of Corinthians is a letter by Paul The Apostle in response to requested counsel on several subjects by the Christian Church at the Grecian City of Corinth, one of the busiest cities of Ancient Greece.
Corinthian means to practice immorality
The First Book of Corinthians revolves around conduct in the Christian Church. Problems confronted were immaturity, instability, divisions, jealousy, lawsuits, marital difficulties, self-will, power struggles, sexual immorality, abuse of The Lord's Supper and a variety of questionable practices. Correction and application of Christian principles are for the individual as well as the Christian assembly. The church members had a full range of spiritual gifts and were given instruction for their correct use. The letter is of great value in the knowledge of church guidance with several congregational and dateless promises. One of the most famous chapters of The Bible is Chapter thirteen of this first Book of Corinthians, a lyrical poem about love.
The First Book of Corinthians is the second of nine New Testament doctrinal and discipleship letters written by The Apostle Paul to the early churches. These books are also considered History Books containing teaching. It is also the seventh of twenty-seven Books of The New Testament.
I CORINTHIANS 1:24 (b)
" CHRIST HIMSELF IS THE CENTRE OF GOD'S PLAN "
God will certainly accomplish His plan for His creation. It is carried out through His control of circumstances. His purpose will prevail; it cannot be thwarted by evil powers. God's plan was determined from eternity for His own glory for the sake of His created people. Its complete fullness is beyond human wisdom. His plan and purpose was revealed through Jesus Christ; God's ultimate plan is to save humankind. Aspects of God's plan are knowing true, perfect life in eternity, being conformed to Jesus, holy and blameless and righteous before Him. Jesus Christ is the Wisdom of God. God alone is wise and discerning, His wisdom is profound and beyond measure. God's glory is revealed through Jesus Christ. To be crucified meant to other people that the person was not reputable and it was inconceivable that a person crucified would be The Saviour of mankind. The Crucified Christ who does save and redeem seems imperceptible to the way humans think. God's intention was to know Him through His Wisdom and not ours, for His Wisdom confounds the wisest of men.
What seemed to be Christ's defeat was in reality the Greatest Triumph for all of mankind and the most important event in History.
Jesus is The Wisdom of God.
