This commentary draws its content from the Concordia Commentary series. This new lay-friendly edition includes all of the original translation and commentary but excludes technical notes, original biblical languages, and terminology required of an academic edition.
Today's world holds similar challenges that were present in Corinth during Paul's time. This commentary shows how Paul witnesses to Christ as a clear beacon who guides us through all of lives issues.
The author's treatment is quite exhaustive. A number of worthy items include Christian maturity, homosexuality, headship, unity in apostolic doctrine, the Lord's Supper, the Church Growth Movement, and tongues.

Preparation for Teaching

I am a lay leader that teaches Adult Bible Studies. I have found the Concordia Popular Commentaries excellent resources to prepare me for teaching. In general, they do a good job of getting to the heart of the matter without getting bogged down in Greek, of which I am a neophyte. Specifically, the 1 Corinthians book does an outstanding job of describing the culture of Corinth and how Paul addresses the concerns he has with the church in the context of the culture. It was history and theology jumping off the pages into my eyes at the same time, a very powerful message. Further, Lockwood does an outstanding job of taking some of the key issues facing the congregation in Corinth, demonstrating how Paul addressed them, and then showed how some of the same issues impact the church today in our western culture. In short, the provided historical context gave 1 Corinthians a deeper and richer meaning and the theological discussion showed how 1 Corinthians applies to our culture, our congregation and to me today. Great job!
