Beginning January 17, 2021: 1st Corinthians
“Paul trudges into Corinth, a lively and lascivious city, presumably on foot and he does not cut a fine figure. He’s recently been badly beaten in Phillipi and has had to leave three other cities in a hurry just ahead of the mob. He leaves Corinth about 18 months later sometime in late 52 having been charged by his Jewish opponents of teaching to “worship God in illegal ways”, but Gallio the Roman governor decides this is an internal matter and refuses to judge him. In around 53, while in Ephesus, he writes his first letter to the Corinthians. We’ll examine what he was saying and why?” – N.T. Wright
