1 & 2 Corinthians: Two Letters to a Tough Church


Number of Lessons: 2Avg. Lesson Length: 23 MinutesTime Required: 2 Hours MinimumLevel: Intermediate


The Corinthian church was planted in a moral cesspool. The people who came to Christ and formed that church brought a wagon-load of philosophical, religious, and moral baggage with them that made this a tough church. The two letters we have from Paul to the Corinthians deal with some of the most thorny spiritual and moral issues addressed anywhere in the Bible. This course, 1 & 2 Corinthians: Two Letters to a Tough Church, contains essential help for the Church in any age.

With this course you will also receive Ray C. Stedman’s teaching commentary related to this section of the Bible. Click here to see a sample chapter.


I respect the views on 2 Corinthians first seven verses by the lecturer, even though Ray Stedman didn’t have such a view. Actually, I have never encountered this anywhere else.
