1 Corinthians Bible Study is exactly what it says it is-a Bible study to be used in church Bible classes, small groups, personal Bible study, etc. This is t a commentary, r does it pretend to be. The author found himself frustrated and disappointed with many of the Bible studies available in the religious marketplace. Most of them seemed too shallow and superficial. They don't allow class participants to eat and drink deeply of the green pastures and still waters of God's Word, Psalm 23:2. A large number of the Bible studies are t conducive for class participants to bring out from God's treasure chest old and new things, Matthew 13:51, 52. A Bible study was needed that lay people could really sink their spiritual teeth into, so they could urish themselves on the meat and potatoes of Holy Scripture. 1 Corinthians was chosen as a book of the Bible to study because of its practical applications to the lives of Christians in the church and the world of the 21st Century. As Solomon wrote many years ago, there is thing new under the sun, Ecclesiastes 1:9. People still suffer from problems and difficulties that they did two thousand years ago, and folks still need a Savior from sin just as much as the ancients. A study of 1 Corinthians allows Christians the opportunity to apply the timeless truths of God's law and gospel to their lives today. The author prays that you will be blessed in your personal study of God's Word, particularly as you dig deep into the precious truths that are communicated to us in 1 Corinthians.
