Have you ever had an experience of God or of the supernatural? I have. Paul based much of his faith upon his experiences of Christ. For Paul, the risen Christ is the Good News!
Paul said that if Christ has not been raised, then our faith is in vain. We will read 1 Corinthians 15:1 to 11 and go over the context and issues raised by the text. Then we will talk about salvation and grace, bodily resurrection, and the supernatural. What did these things mean to Paul and first century Christians, and how should we understand them today.
With me today is Bert Newton, the author of “Subversive Wisdom: Sociopolitical Dimensions of John’s Gospel.”
