In writing 1 Corinthians, Paul faced the challenge of a church established in the truth but rife with disunity and sin, influenced by a decadent pagan culture in its city. As he encourages the faithful, confronts the wayward, and answers pressing questions, Paul gives us some of the most beloved passages in the New Testament alongside some of the most challenging. It is a letter that deserves our careful study.

In volume five of this series, Alistair Begg considers two questions that affected public worship in Corinth and are still relevant today. It’s necessary to recognize that God has ordained a biblical pattern of manhood and womanhood—not for the purpose of manipulation but as a framework in which to practice Christian love. At the same time, the Lord’s Supper is meant to be an opportunity not for disunity and greed but for fellowship with one another under the Lord. Understanding these things aright will bring dignity and unity to our congregations.
