Paul’s letters to the Corinthian assembly confront challenges faced by the Jesus movement as it expanded into a Gentile milieu. In this unit, students will examine 1 and 2 Corinthians from a sociological and rhetorical perspective, focusing on issues of class, status, sex, idolatry, slavery, economics, gender, liturgy, eschatology, and conflict. Students will gain in-depth familiarity with both primary and secondary sources, knowledge of important features of historical background, and develop skills in biblical exegesis and applying critical methodologies.
