The issues addressed in the the book of 1 Corinthians are strikingly similar to the issues faced by the church today: sin, pride, disunity, and confused identities. Paul warns the Corinthians with words of exhortation, but not without profound encouragement. In doing so, he points modern readers to the hope offered to Christians as they follow Jesus in a fallen world.

In this commentary, pastor Stephen Um uses powerful illustrations and practical applications to point readers and teachers of the Bible to the heart of Paul's first letter to the Corinthians: the gospel of Jesus Christ that has the power to save, change, and unite God's people.

Part of the Preaching the Word series.
