This unit provides an overview of Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthians. The letter addresses a divided and dysfunctional local congregation, largely due to their adoption of the world’s value system. Paul exhorts them, instead, to live out an alternative community ethic grounded in Jesus’ death and resurrection. This message is as timely today as it was 2000 years ago.
Please Note: This unit is only for students who are studying a Diploma and do not plan to continue to a Degree or Associate Degree. Students in other courses should consider NT010 (Paul & Corinthian Christianity).
Prior to 2020, this unit content was delivered under the unit code NT206.
