What Are the Epistles? (1 Corinthians 1:1-3)


Terry Starling, August 6, 2017
Part of the God's Word category, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Terry reminds us that the Bible was written at various times for a situation or particular people (not that they aren’t applicable to us today!) starting back in the Creation and the Patriarchal period, the Exodus, Jews, the time of captivity and return, and on to the days of Jesus, and then to the early church. Tonight, he speaks to us about the similarities between the various epistles, written after the establishment of the church, and what God intended by them.

1:1 Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and our brother Sosthenes,

To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (ESV)
