THE GOSPEL OF RESURRECTION: A Socio-Rhetorical Study of First Corinthians Fifteen in the BIC Commentary Services volume 37

A 52 page analysis of Paul's response to the perversion of the idea of resurrection floating around some of the house church groups in mid-first century Corinth. Paul pulls together, in a highly creative manner, the structuring of classical deliberative persuasive Greek rhetoric with insightful arguments utilizing traditional scribal Jewish patterns of argumentation from his days as a Pharisee. He powerfully defends the apostolic Gospel emphasis upon the centrality of Jesus' resurrection and its connection to the resurrection of Christian believers at the parousia of Christ.
