Living The Christian Faith

Course sypnosis: A literary and historical analysis of 1 Corinthians. Certain passages will be selected for exegetical purposes to identify the main theological themes of the book, particularly on 1 Corinthians 8-10, because of its relevance in the Asian context. The importance of applying Paul’s teaching to contemporary Christian living will be highlighted throughout the course.

Issues that plaguing the contemporary church such as sexual immorality, divisions, divorce, women leadership, food offered to idols, etc, were dealt by Paul in his epistle to the Corinthians. One could argue that 1 Corinthians is a timeless epistle to the Christian church in all ages. Dr. Newton, in his capacity as a pastor, missionary and Pauline Scholar, will bring us fresh insight into Paul’s teaching and dealing with the various issues confronting the church today. This course is intended for laity and Christian leaders to think through theologically and gain insights to deal with their church problems.
