Paul’s epistles to Corinth are permeated with christological epistemology pertaining to Christian identity, which is articulated through contextual issues, challenges and affirmations that are variously experienced in Christian faith and its continuing expressions. This unit explores the peculiar epistemology of Christian identity and theological perspectives concerning faith, community, eschatology, mission, ethics and freedom that are generated by the textures of Paul’s Corinthian correspondence.
