Twenty years after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul wrote a series of letters to the church he had helped to establish in Corinth. Packed with pastoral wisdom, righteous frustration, and awe-inspiring theological insights, these letters became part of the Christian Bible—and continue to shape, inspire, and frustrate us nearly two thousand years later. Money, sex, power, family, idolatry: almost all of the Corinthians’ challenges are things we wrestle with today.
Beginning January 9, Forest Hills’ Winter Bible School will invite us to journey back to the first time the church in Corinth read these words. We’ll get historical insight, lively discussion, and maybe even a controversy or two.
Anne Kaufman Weaver, M. Div., will lead us in this interactive Bible study based on the book of the same title by Reta Halteman Finger and George D. McClain.
Mark your calendars now for a trip back to Corinth and prepare to see how these letters shaped a movement that turned the world on its head.
