Christology and the Cross

1 Corinthians clearly reveals Paul’s Pneumatology. The Corinthian church was a charismatic church which ministered in the spiritual gifts with great expression (1 Cor. 12-14). Their pneumatic experiences are the mainstay for many modern-day renewal churches. In addition, scholarly research continually develops the complete Pauline Pneumatology of the New Testament. Within the Corinthian context, the apostle’s Pneumatological expression remains abundant. This investigation attempts a comprehensive understanding of the theology and work of the Holy Spirit in the Corinthian correspondence. As previously stated, plentiful authors and their research contributed greatly to this section. As I elaborate my recognition of Paul’s Pneumatology in 1 Corinthians, this survey will enhance the eventual grounding of Paul’s grounding of the Spirit with his Christology.
