What we're about

Do you have an interest in reading and studying the Bible? Is there something you would like to study more deeply?

Let's read and study it together and share in the discovery! The purpose of this group is to read and discuss the ancient collection of books known as the Bible. This is an open discussion about the Bible as a collection of inspired writings from God.

Since these books are from God, what does that mean for us as humans?

We plan to explore topics such as the story of Jesus Christ, the early Christian church, God's relationship with man throughout history, and Jesus as the fulfillment of ancient Hebrew prophecy of a Messiah.

Our goal is that everyone leaves with hopefully a better understanding of the Bible and Jesus Christ.

Bring your questions!

1 Corinthians is a letter from the apostle Paul to the "church of God which is at Corinth" (1:1). Corinth was a commercial center that has been called a "sin city" of the Roman Empire: "the city was notorious as a center of wealth and indulgence. 'To live as a Corinthian' meant to live in luxury and immorality." (Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible). In his letter, Paul gives practical instruction to the Christians in how to live sanctified and transformed lives in the midst of their carnal culture. The letter can be roughly divided into two sections:

• Chapters 1-6 contain Paul's responses to some problems in the church that had been reported to him (cf. 1:11, 5:1)

• Chapters 7-16 are Paul's responses to questions that he had received from the church (cf. 7:1, 8:1, 12:1, 16:1).

This class is designed to be a relatively brief survey of the problems and questions Paul addresses rather than a verse-by-verse study --- we will be focusing on selected passages from the book. However, students will be expected to read and meditate on the entire text prior to each class to help ensure our discussions are based on accurate interpretations. After the last class of the nine-lesson survey, we will meet for at least one or two more classes to review and to have time to give more attention to focusing on any questions that we'd like to dig deeper into. Hope you can join!
