Our society is so much like that of the  Corinthians that if we understand Paul's answers to the questions of believers in Corinth, we will know God's mind on the current problems of the Church.

What is the role of the Spirit in the Church? How are donations exercised? What about speaking in tongues? prophecies? What is the baptism of the dead? When and how will the resurrection take place? How to exercise discipline in the Church? What framework has sexuality? Henry Bryant addresses these questions and many others throughout this text, so close to the concerns of the Church today.

The purpose of this comment is therefore twofold:

  1. To help the reader better understand Paul's thoughts by examining the text of the letter and by presenting the various possible interpretations.
  2. Suggest to modern Christians how they can put into practice the various truths that are stated in this first-century writing.
