1 Corinthians (The NIV Application Commentary, New Testament #7)

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own.

Some things I felt were addressed with an agenda, like he didn't actually want to consider other possibilities, but Blomberg is one of my favorites, so it's hard for me to find stuff to complain about. A great commentary.

Best of the commentaries I consulted during my study of 1 Corinthians.  Blomberg was clear and economical.  


 

Notes:


(1) Celsis: good to bad, from beautiful to ugly, from happiness to unhappiness, from what is best to what is worst, and God would never accept such a change.”

The second-century philosopher Celsus, who made a career out of attacking Christianity, wrote, “God is good and beautiful and happy, and if in that which is most beautiful and best, if then he descends to man it involves change
