Description

Questions surrounding church traditions, the role of women in ministry, and the ways “spiritual gifts” are to be understood, embraced, and embodied were as real in the Apostle Paul’s time as they are today. Looking closely at the issues the early church faced, and how Paul addressed them, can help us find practical answers that can guide us in living as new, fully realized followers of Christ.

In this online course, Professor N.T. Wright explores chapters 11-16 of Paul’s first Epistle to the Corinthians, and explains in plain language Paul’s mission to unite a diverse, and sometimes fractured congregation through Christ’s love. You’ll learn how Paul described the community of faith as the body of Christ, and how the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth changed everything — and continues to transform the world.

Who this course is for:
  • Those intrigued by the role of women in the church, issues of spiritual gifts, and the importance of the resurrection
  • People interested in learning how the Apostle Paul addressed key issues facing the early church
  • Anyone interested in creating a more meaningful life through Biblical wisdom, particularly through New Testament writings
  • Clergy looking for resources or inspiration to enhance their sermons and other work in the church, as well as their personal ongoing spiritual journey
  • Fans of N.T. Wright interested in Professor Wright’s insights on bringing more spirituality to their work life
