NT334 is a comprehensive study of 1 Corinthians from historical, cultural, literary, and theological perspectives by a distinguished scholar Dr. Craig Blomberg. Each passage of 1 Corinthians is examined in detail and interpreted in light of the overarching narrative flow of the book and relevant Graeco-Roman and Jewish backgrounds. The course identifies key themes that link the individual units together and discusses controversial topics in a fair and biblical manner. It also draws from Paul’s pastoral responses to the Corinthian church’s problems to provide immediate application to Christian life and to the church today. Though Dr. Blomberg’s style of speech delivery is a bit monotonous, he highlights all the right points and raises the relevant issues in the book.
