The Message of the Cross

1 Corinthians 1:1-31, Key Verse 1:18

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

  1. Who wrote this letter, and to whom is it written? (1-2) Why does Paul introduce himself as an apostle of Christ Jesus? According to verse 2, what are the characteristics of the church of God? Why does Paul emphasize these things? What was his greeting to them? (3)

  2. On what basis does Paul give thanks for the believers in Corinth? (4-7) How did they receive their spiritual gifts? (6; Ac 18:8-11) Read verses 8-9. What does he believe about their future? How could he believe this? (9)

  3. What is Paul’s appeal to them? (10) What report had he received about them? (11-12) How did Paul bring them back to the proper perspective? (13-16) What was the focus of Paul’s ministry? (17)

  4. What are the two responses that people can have towards the message of the cross? (18) What is the relationship between human wisdom and God’s salvation? (19-21) What did Paul keep doing despite people’s preference? (22-23) What was his personal confidence? (24-25)

  5. What kind of people were the Corinthians when they were called? (26) Why did God call people like them? (27-29) How and by whom had they been changed? (30) Why should we boast in the Lord? (31)
