New Book by Dr. Daniel E. Woodhead
Introducing the new commentary by Dr. Daniel E. Woodhead: The Book of 1 Corinthians, Practical Christian Truth for Iniquitous Times.
Corinth was an especially licentious city. The moral depravity that Paul saw at Corinth persuaded him to speak to the spiritual needs of believers in a difficult culture. It was essentially a moral cesspool and a debaucher’s paradise. It was akin to our modern day Las Vegas where divorce was commonplace, and resulted in broken lives for the new believers who lived there. It was indeed debauched since “easy” women roamed the streets. As our culture descends into deeper depravity with a high divorce rate, easy abortion and sexual immorality this book has practical contemporary relevance.
The First Epistle to The Corinthians speaks to the difficulties of maintaining a Christian community in a degenerate culture including instruction on how to be “in the world” but “not of the world.” The apostle prays that we be led by the Spirit and not be conformed to the practices of this world however enticing they may be (Ephesians 4:1-5:17).
