In the first century, Corinth was a city that was synonymous with self-indulgent immorality. Corinth’s cultural rot had infected the church that Paul had established in that city. The Apostle Paul wrote them the gracious letter of correction that we know as First Corinthians. Today, Pastor Ray Viola uses Luke’s account of this church’s founding to set the stage for our verse-by-verse study of this epistle. Please open your Bibles to verse one of Acts chapter 18 as we begin our study of 1 Corinthians.
