RCS NT 09A: 1 Corinthians


In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul writes, I " delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died
for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was
raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures (1 Cor 15:3-4 " ESV).



Reflecting on Paul's summary of the gospel, sixteenth-century
biblical commentator, theologian, and Lutheran pastor Tilemann Hesshus wrote,
The central tenet and foundation of our entire religion is that our Lord " Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again for our justification. All of our
comfort, salvation and hope rest upon this foundation. From this is derived
that greatest comfort concerning the resurrection of the dead and the future
life of eternal glory.
"


Throughout the church's history, Christians have turned to the
epistles of the Apostle Paul in order to understand the essentials of the
Christian faith, learn from the challenges faced by early Christians, and
discern how to navigate the complexities of following Christ. Among those who
gained wisdom from Paul were the Protestant Reformers, who found inspiration
and instruction about how to lead the church of their day during a time of
significant theological debate, ecclesiastical reform, and spiritual
renewal.



In this volume of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, Scott
Manetsch guides readers through a diversity of Reformation-era commentary on
the first of Paul's letters to the Corinthians. Within this volume, readers
will encounter familiar voices and discover lesser-known figures from a variety
of theological traditions, including Lutherans, Reformed, Radicals, Anglicans,
and Roman Catholics. Drawing on a variety of resources-including
commentaries, sermons, treatises, and confessions-much of which appears
here for the first time in English, it provides resources for contemporary
preachers, enables scholars to better understand the depth and breadth of
Reformation commentary, and helps all Christians cling to the things of first
importance.
