McGuiggan Commentary: 1 Corinthians
Looking into the Bible Series
There are lots of fundamentally important things to be learned from the 1 Corinthian letter. We learn that an assembly of God's people is, in practice, often quite different from what we wish it to be. The Corinthian congregation was a wild and woolly assembly but their basic problems are the very same problems we face in assemblies of disciples today.
This makes the 1 Corinthian epistle especially helpful to us today. We can learn a lot from Paul as he attempts to 'save again' an assembly which he began and which just about broke his heart.
