1 Corinthians 15 forms the Covenantal, Contextual and Prophetic backdrop and Framework to understanding 1 Corinthians 15. In this study, the aim is to demonstrate that the concepts, words and ideas developed in chapter 15, are based on the framework clearly set forth in the chapter.
Paul's development of the chapter does not occur within a vacuum. He has introduced all the elements of the chapter in the earlier chapters beginning in the chapter 1 so that the concepts are not foreign to the observant reader.
To grasp the meaning of the terms and ideas presented, one would do well to seriously read and study the foundational concepts and ideas. His framework is the Creation from Genesis and the Exodus motif in a redemptive framework based on the prophetic Scriptures. Paul does not write from a Graeco Roman pespective. His eschatology, soteriology and anthropology is based on the law and the prophets. Join us for this exciting study.
