Welcome to this Bible Study on First Corinthians.

Welcome to this computerized study of First Corinthians. It is sub-titled 'Overcoming Problems in the Church' because that is the main theme of this epistle written by the Apostle Paul around about the year 55AD. He wrote to a particular Church assembly in Corinth at a particular time in history with particular problems , but the principles we can extract are timeless and valuable for effective church life today.

This material will help you effectively apply the principles learnt in First Corinthians in your own Church situation and Christian experience today. You will learn the proper attitude towards Church leadership and different denominational styles, how to practically deal with difficult church disciplinary issues and much, much more.

The Greek Word Links

When you read the Bible verses in each section you will notice that you can click on some of the words. This will cause a page to appear with the Greek word that is used in the original text (from which the English version has been translated).

Click here for an example.

You will notice that it will always start off with a number. This is the STRONGS number (a special designated number for the Greek word) and may be useful for further study using other sources. Then comes the Greek word itself (in this case it is 'hupotasso' which is the romanized form of the Greek word). Then comes the meaning of this word plus its usage in the Bible. After the dotted line will come the words that are used to make up the main word. In this case, 'hupotasso' is made up of two Greek words 'hupo' and 'tasso' - these meanings are useful for tracing the makeup of any word and seeing the depth of meaning it has.

I have included the greek meanings of words I feel it is necessary to look at as their original meanings add deeper insights into the passage meaning.
