In this Volume

“The word of the cross” [1:18] takes the center stage in St. Paul’s epistle to the Corinthians. Canonically undisputed, the letter is aimed at a converted gentile audience and deals with the host of issues faced by the young church. In this original translation and commentary, Rev. Dr. Gregory J. Lockwood focuses on the themes of the church’s unity that Paul presents in the epistle. In addition to a thorough exegesis of the entire letter, Lockwood provides additional material on the geography, history, religious landscape, and moral culture of the city of Corinth at the time of the epistle. He also takes up topics such as the Lord’s Supper, the Office of the Ministry, and marriage as they appear in 1 Corinthians and delineates their treatment both in the early church and today.

Additional Essays

  • Modern Denominations
  • Christian Maturity
  • Spiritual Gifts in 1 Corinthians
  • Worship Practice Today
  • On the Ordination of Women

About the Author

Dr. Gregory J. Lockwood was associate professor of exegetical theology at Concordia Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne, Indiana, before returning to his native Australia, where he serves as a professor and parish pastor. He studied at the University of Adelaide, Australia (B.A.), the University of Melbourne, Australia (B.Ed.), and Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri (S.T.M., Th.D.). He also served as a missionary in Papua New Guinea.


"Where this commentary is at its best is in moving away from the text itself to address topics of controversy in a broader manner. One finds welcome treatments of issues of theological and ethical Significance: "Modern Denominations," "Christian Maturity," "Homosexuality," "Spiritual Gifts in 1 Corinthians," "Worship Practice Today," and "The Ordination of Women." In addition, several pericopes are followed by discussions of implications for present-day life and practice: Lawsuits among believers, marriage and divorce, closed communion, etc. These will aid the busy pastor in its summary presentation of what has been professed about the given topic by conservative Lutheran theologians."

Dr. Jeffery J. Kloha, Professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis in Concordia Journal (January 2002)

About the series

The Concordia Commentary Series: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture is written to enable pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the Biblical text.

The series will cover all the canonical books of the Old and New Testament, with an original translation and meticulous grammatical analysis of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek of each text. The foremost interpretive lens centers on the unified proclamation of the person and work of Christ across every Scriptural book.

The Commentary fully affirms the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture; Each passage bears witness to the confession that God has reconciled the world to Himself through the incarnation, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ His Son.

Authors expose the rich treasury of language, imagery, and thematic content of the Scripture, while supplementing their work with additional research in archaeology, history, and extrabiblical literature. Throughout, God’s Word emanates from authors careful attention and inculcates the ongoing life of the Church in Word, Sacrament, and daily confession.
