Cross purposes

Because the Corinthian Christians have broken into groups – identifying with different patrons: Paul, Apollos, Cephas and Christ – Paul appeals to them to be of one mind. At the centre should be the cross of Christ, which must not be emptied of its power but should unite all Christians.

This week's resources explore: what unites us in Christ.


Linking this week's reading to the news headlines
PostScript for 19 January: Words of encouragementPaul greets the Corinthians with grace and peace. How do our communications compare? (1 Corinthians 1.1-9)
