The book of 1 Corinthians contains Paul's exhortations to the church in Corinth, which was struggling with a lack of unity brought about by arrogance and divisiveness. In this 12-week study, author Jay Thomas helps readers understand that the only remedy for disunity is the truth of the gospel which defeats pride.

Series: Knowing the Bible
The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply Gods Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) Reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) "Gospel Glimpses" highlight the gospel of grace throughout each book; (3) "Whole-Bible Connections" show how any given passage connects to the Bibles overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) "Theological Soundings" identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of Gods grace on each and every page of the Bible.
Pauls first letter to the Corinthian church contains one of the most quoted chapters in all of the Bible: 1 Corinthians 13. In this accessible study, pastor and author Jay Thomas helps readers see that this epistle is about more than love and marriage. At the heart of 1 Corinthians is the reality that the good news of Jesus Christ saves, changes, and unites Gods people.
