Paul helped to establish the church in Corinth, but by the time he wrote his first letter to them, the church had already wandered from its foundation. Novel ideas were favored over solid biblical teaching, resulting in confusion, division, and spiritual infancy. Desiring that the church might be presented mature in Christ, Paul addressed a number of practical elements of faith. Noting striking resemblances between the Corinthian church and the Church today, Alistair Begg walks us through the warnings and exhortations of 1 Corinthians.

In volume five of this series, we examine spiritual gifts: What are they? What purpose do they serve? Are some better than others? In Corinth, misguided answers to these questions produced discrimination and pride rather than unity in purpose and spirit. Paul, however, taught that when we use our gifts and fulfill our roles, the Church can most effectively reflect Christ to the world.
