Synopsis: In the early 50's AD, the apostle Paul arrived in Corinth and began to preach the Gospel. By God's grace, people believed and a church was planted. A few years later Paul left Corinth and wrote a letter to this fledgling church. We call this letter "1 Corinthians" in our New Testament. The letter reveals a church that was both blessed and broken. The church experienced the blessing of the Holy Spirit's power. Yet, it was a divided church with worldly ways of thinking and relating. In 1 Corinthians, Paul called the church to grasp of the Gospel afresh so that the cross of Christ would shape their life together.
