Colin Adams points out that this morning’s passage is setting up a base from which to correct another Corinthian error introduced in verse 12. However, taken as a stand alone document, it is an extremely compelling summary of the gospel. Within it, Paul declares:
- The Gospel’s life changing and death reversing facts vv1-8.
- The Gospel’s comprehensive grace. God’s grace to Paul v10 and God’s empowering grace with Paul.
- The Gospel’s complete unity—Whether it is I or they, this is what we preach.
