Summary

"The ensuing pages of this work represent some twenty-six years of theological study and service in the pastoral ministry to four church congregations. Each of Paul’s letters of 1 Corinthians, Ephesians, and Colossians has been historically researched and systematically exegeted, with the appropriate tools, prior to being taught to a specific congregation. Following the teaching, discussion has been encouraged to enable problematic issues to be resolved. This is especially so with the spiritual-language debate of the letter to the Corinthians, the absolute Trinitarian value of seeking to understand the Bible and how that affects one being a disciple of the living Christ. Further, on many occasions, detailed sermon notes were provided to the members of the congregations for private study and reflection. The work, as such, is a compilation of sermon notes from the three letters mentioned which have been re-edited and reconfigured to form a narrative which is readable for any disciple of Christ. Hence, it is not a detailed theological work with footnotes and language included, although there are some exceptions to this rule. Rather, the work is aimed at being a devotional tool for those who seek to have deeper insight into how: - the apostle Paul over sighted churches - church issues are resolved - Churches should behave ethically in their service for the Lord."--Preface.
