Material Overview

First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community is an exploratory bible study which allows the participant to understand St. Paul’s message to the people of Corinth and apply the same message to their own daily life.

About the Program

The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth are in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community explores the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grace and the Church as the Body of Christ. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist.



  • Learn the importance of Christian unity in relation to the Church as the Body of Christ. Explore St. Paul’s strategy for successful evangelization.
  • See how to live a Christian life in the midst of a pagan culture.
  • Discover why St. Paul sees the Church as the Body of Christ.
  • Learn how St. Paul’s letter proves that the sacrifice of Christ is truly made present in the Eucharist.
  • Gain a new vision for seeing the body as a temple of the Holy Spirit.
