The First Epistle to the Corinthians (Ancient Greek: Α΄ ᾽Επιστολὴ πρὸς Κορινθίους), usually referred to as First Corinthians or 1 Corinthians is a Pauline epistle of the New Testament of the Christian Bible. The epistle is attributed to Paul the Apostle and a co-author named Sosthenes, and is addressed to the Christian church in Corinth. Scholars believe that Sosthenes was the amanuensis who wrote down the text of the letter at Paul's direction.

Each book in the series includes an insightful introduction to the important historical.

For pastors or teachers who are working through 1 Corinthians, however, Barrett's work should not be missed.

First Epistle to the Corinthians. The KJV New Testament was translated from the Textus Receptus

First Epistle to the Corinthians. The KJV New Testament was translated from the Textus Receptus. However, the majority of the book of Revelation seems to have been translated from the Latin Vulgate. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

I read this entire book cover to cover. Maybe it is partly due to the nature of the material, but I do honestly think Fee could have focused more on clarity. I have no problems with that. Even so, I thought Fee was sometimes too "academic" in his writing style.

Modern commentaries based on new English translations made by the respective editors and intended, while adhering strictly to sound scholarship and doctrine, to bring out above all the theological and religious message of the New Testament for the contemporary Church.

This is one of the most highly regarded commentaries on 1 Corinthians in evangelical circles - in spite of the fact that it is now quite old, having been first published back in 1971.

Dr. Scot McKnight is a recognized authority on the New Testament, early Christianity, and is the Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies at North Park University (Chicago, Illinois.) He cites his top three commentaries on 1 Corinthians as being:
1. Gordon Fee: The First Epistle to the Corinthians
2. C.K. Barrett, ("whose skill in writing commentaries on Paul has no rival." - McKnight)
3. Ben Witherington's commentary: Conflict and Community in Corinth: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary on 1 and 2 Corinthians

Barrett's work is also highly rated by Dr. D.A. Carson, professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Dr Carson's areas of expertise include biblical theology, Greek grammar and Pauline theology. He is a member of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical Research and the Society of Biblical Literature. He is also the author of the highly regarded "New Testament Commentary Survey." Dr. Carson assesses Barrett's work as one of the top three commentaries on 1 Corinthians. (Like McKnight, he places Fee's commentary as the best general commentary - but also highly rates the commentaries written by David Garland and Anthony Thiselton.)
