The Wiersbe Bible Study Series: 1 Corinthians by Warren W. Wiersbe

The Wiersbe Bible Study Series: 1 CorinthiansIn first-century Greece, a fledgling church was struggling to live out their new faith in a corrupt culture. The congregation at Corinth was mired in contradiction, heralding the power of spiritual gifts and knowledge, yet foolishly engaging in sinful behavior. This troubled church inspired the apostle Paul to write one of his most extraordinary letters.The Wiersbe Bible Study Series explores timeless wisdom found in God’s Word. Based on Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s popular “BE” series of commentaries, each study provides topical, relevant insights from selected books of the Bible. Designed for small groups or individuals, this eight-week study explores Paul’s call for wisdom in the life of the believer, a truth that remains as relevant as ever.

Biblical Nuggets: The Belt of Truth – An Armor of God


Armor of God

In his Epistle to the church in Ephesus, Apostle Paul exhorts the church to be fully armored with spiritual weapons to fight spiritual battle with satan everyday (Ephesians 6:10-20). Belt is one of the armors believers are must to have. The belt of Truth must be girded around the waist because a soldier cannot secure his sword without a belt. There will be no place to put his sword around his waist (6:14a). In the Roman world, even when a soldier is not carrying all other weapons, he must be girded with his belt readily. So do believers have to have this belt of Truth in all circumstances.

What is truth?

“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” John 17:17

Biblical Nuggets: Mars’ Hill in Athens


Mars' Hill in AthensAt Mars’ Hill, also known as the Areopagus, Paul used an inscription to an “unknown god” as a starting point for proclaiming the good news of Christ to the Greek. He confronted widespread idol worship by declaring the true identity of the Creator. Using Greek worship and poetry, Paul articulated God’s demand for repentance and His provision of salvation through Jesus: “Then Paul stood in front of the Areopagus and said… ‘What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you'” (Acts 17:22, 23).[1]
