PAUL TO CORINTH
Comments on First and Second Corinthians
PAUL’S EXHORTATIONS TO THE CORINTHIANS REVEAL MANY GEMS of the revelation concerning Christ, and the realities of the new age into which God has ushered the world. These letters provide precious insights into the character of God, the work of Christ, Paul’s understanding concerning the Resurrection, and the appropriate conduct for God’s called-out community. God absolutely delights and considers it of great value to restore all of humanity to health, wholeness, and our original state of walking in love, united with God as “one Spirit”!
Another great addition to Jonathan’s series of NT commentaries:
In depth verse-by-verse comments and explanations
Quotes from NT and OT passages, and Second Temple Jewish literature
Citations from multiple scholars who offer diverse perspectives
Historical and contemporary contexts are on offer that may enlighten the thinking of Paul, along with the rhetoric of those days and Paul’s use of language and figures of speech. Although most of Paul’s writings are original to the revelations that he received, we are confident that just as he was aware of the works of Greek poets, he would have been aware of the thinking and manner of OT interpretation such as was used by his contemporary, Philo, of Alexandria.
We view Paul’s theological environment as being a part of the larger Christian movement of his day, and thus quotes from NT passages, 1st century Christian documents, and quotes from the period of Second Temple Judaism, would have likely been representative of the ongoing developments in the oral traditions following the years of the ministry, and then the death, of Jesus Christ. May this work shed light on these two letters written to address specific issues within the 1st century city of Corinth, in addition to their relevance for us today.
