About this Series
This is a series looking at one of the Apostle Paul’s longest letters. Corinth is in modern-day Greece and was a thriving commercial centre due to its proximity to the sea. As a church it certainly had its problems. But then what church doesn’t have problems?
1 Corinthians 2:6-16 | Jordan Hitchcock |
Christians believe the Holy Spirit is the third member of the Trinity and praise the Spirit as "the Lord, the giver of life" (Nicene Creed). Churches differ in how they express their belief in the Holy Spirit. At Corinth it is obvious there were very real, dynamic and in some ways, divisive, experiences of the Spirit and part of what Paul is doing in 1 Corinthians is teaching them about the Spirit and how to respond more appropriately to the Spirit's work in their lives.
