The apostle Paul wrote this intensely personal and biographical letter to defend his ministry and integrity against the slanderous attacks of false teachers and critics of the Christian movement.

After spending eighteen months in Corinth helping to establish a church, the apostle Paul moved on in his mission to build more churches in Asia Minor. But back in Corinth, false teachers began to infiltrate the church, and they were intent on ruining Paul's character and ministry. This threatened to separate and create chaos among this once-unified body.

Pastor John MacArthur will take you through the first letter to the church in Corinth to show how Paul deals firmly with the false teachers and their followers by focusing primarily on Christ, while embracing his own weaknesses and imperfections. As a powerful reminder for struggling and maligned believers everywhere, Paul quotes the Savior: "My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness."
