1 Corinthians 15: Introduction


Paul’s main exposition of his views on the Resurrection

Why did Paul write this?



  • The Corinthians had a tendency to “collapse” Christians teachings back into pagan religion. In particular, they had a tendency to view the afterlife as a bodiless immortality of the soul.

  • Paul is trying to teach them “eschatology” -- the story of God’s plan to put the world right in Jesus (Eschatology = the branch of theology dealing with the ultimate destiny of mankind and the world)
