Wednesday Morning Bible Study – Epiphany 2019
Wednesday Morning Bible Study
The Corinthian Correspondence
The setting for the ministry of Jesus was rural Galilee. Thus, many of his parables have an agricultural theme. But the Biblical record clearly shows that as Christianity spread through the Roman world, it was a largely urban phenomenon. One of the earliest Christian churches was located in the very cosmopolitan seaport city of Corinth. This church was founded by the Apostle Paul and the New Testament canon includes two letters that he wrote to the members of that church. As we revisit these ancient documents, we discover that they are remarkably relevant to the experience of churches in today’s world.
You are invited to join the Wednesday Morning Bible Study group, led by Bruce Johnson, as they explore the letters of Paul to the church in Corinth. This group meets in the parish library from 10:30 to noon on Wednesday mornings. Come and be part of it.
