Early thoughts on 1 Corinthians

We are on 1-2 Corinthians this week at Heights Church.

Some early thoughts in 1 Corinthians:

It’s the cross of Christ. Paul certainly talks about the power of resurrection, but it’s the power of the cross that is central to him.

Christ didn’t send me to preach the good news with clever words so that Christ’s cross won’t be emptied of its meaning. (1:17)

but we preach Christ crucified, which is a scandal to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles. (1:23)

I had made up my mind not to think about anything while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and to preach him as crucified (2:2)

What is the essence of my life? How do I want to be identified?
