An Exposition of Chapters 8-15
This book offers verse-by-verse expository comments on chapters 8 to 15 of what we know as the apostle Paul’s “First Epistle to the Corinthians”.
In this section of his letter, the apostle tackled the issues of the eating of food offered to idols, the wearing of head-coverings, the Lord’s Supper, spiritual gifts, and the resurrection of the body. When doing this, he set out timeless principles which are directly relevant to our own day and age.
The present volume aims to help the reader
- to better understand the meaning of Paul’s words in their original historical and cultural setting, and then
- to apply the lessons he or she has learned to his or her own life and experience.
