Course description

The Apostle Paul spent 18 months establishing a local church in Corinth. After he left, divisions, squabbles, leadership crises, and tension surrounding following Jesus in a very secular world threatened to fracture the foundation he worked to establish. In his letter to Corinth, Paul confronts these divisions with wisdom and tact.

In this intriguing online course, Professor N.T. Wright examines 1 Corinthians Chapters 1-10, and explores how the Apostle Paul dealt in practical terms with difficult, controlling, divisive people. You’ll also learn more about Paul’s views on marriage and human sexuality, and how he navigated questions of conscience and the limits of freedom. Prof. Wright makes clear connections between the teachings of Paul in Corinth and challenges faced by modern church leaders.
