Description: Investigate the challenges, threats, and opportunities experienced by the early church Volume 2 of The First Urban Churches focuses on the urban context of Christian churches in first-century Roman Corinth. An investigation of the material evidence of Corinth helps readers today understand properly the challenges, threats, and opportunities that the early Corinthian believers faced in the city. The essays demonstrate decisively the difference that such an approach makes in grappling with the meaning and context of the Corinthian epistles in the New Testament.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History
