Outline of 1 Corinthians

The following are my notes of Ed Gravely’s lecture at SEBTS.

What was the occasion for why Paul wrote this letter?

1. There were partisan groups, division in the church. – 1:11

2. There were personal attacks against Paul – 4:3 & 9:1-3)

3. There was infamous immorality – 5:1-5 & 6:12-20

4. There were lawsuits among believers – 6:1-8

5. There were abuses at the Lord’s table – 11:17-34

6. There were abuses of spiritual gifts – 12-14

7. There was false doctrine, especially about the resurrection – 15

Ch. 1-4 – Division in the Church
