W 248 Worship in 1 Corinthians (2021)


Can we know what worship in the gathered assembly was like in first-century Corinth? What we call Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians reveals a wider diversity of activities, including the reading of Scripture, the sharing of a meal, and various acts of speech.

This intriguing study explores each of these elements and their significance. It then looks at how these might be translated into a contemporary liturgical context, and offers a usable liturgical text for the present day.
