About the study:  FIRST CORINTHIANS: The Church and the Christian Community

The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth were in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians -- divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful. 

The message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. Join us as we explore the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church -- the nature of grace and the Church as the Body of Christ, and the most powerful gift of all -- the Eucharist.

Your will:

  • Learn the importance of Christian unity in relation to the Church as the Body of Christ.
  • Explore St. Paul’s strategy for successful evangelization.
  • See how to live a Christian life in the midst of a pagan culture.
  • Discover why St. Paul sees the Church as the Body of Christ.
  • Learn how St. Paul’s letter proves that the sacrifice of Christ is truly made present in the Eucharist.
  • Gain a new vision for seeing the body as a temple of the Holy Spirit.
