1 Corinthians 14:1-25
We are continuing our sermon series through Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. The city of Corinth was a Roman colony in Greece. It was a lively, global city, a center for thought and creativity, comprised of diverse peoples and cultures. Most of the early Christian converts in Corinth were non-Jews, former pagans and polytheists. Thus, Paul’s message to the Church in Corinth was a radical departure from the status quo: Through the counterintuitive victory of the crucified Christ, the world is being swept up into the grand, redemptive movement of the one true God of Israel. And this changes everything!
