Podcast: Warnings and Assurance in 1 Corinthians

Mere FidelityAndrew Wilson’s defence of his PhD thesis is this week, so we decided that this episode of Mere Fidelity would be devoted to discussing his work, on the subject of warnings and assurance in the book of 1 Corinthians. Derek, Andrew, and I explore the way that these theological themes relate to each other, and how they are intertwined in Paul’s teaching in 1 Corinthians. Please also pray that Andrew’s defence goes well and that his studies over the past few years will prove a fruitful preparation for his ongoing service of Christ’s Church.

You can also follow the podcast on iTunes, or using this RSS feed. Listen to past episodes on Soundcloud and on this page on my blog.

    Great episode, Alastair! I loved the way that you emphasized the double-sided of certain themes — such as unity in the body of Christ, through 1 Corinthians. (Both as an encouragement and a grounds for warning.) Do you have a favorite source or two on 1 Corinthians that traces those big-picture themes? I think it’s helpful to really contextualize 1 Cor. 11:29-32 in particular.

    • Thanks! In terms of a source that traces those themes, I don’t have any real recommendations. I haven’t done a great deal of close academic study of 1 Corinthians as a whole, so my thoughts are mostly drawn from my personal reading of it. That said, I’ve enjoyed Thiselton’s big commentary on 1 Corinthians and have always found him a valuable interlocutor in my reading of the book,
