1 Corinthians 5
- 1 Corinthians 5.1-13 Notes by Paul Tuoy in which he heavily engages with Brian Rosner’s book, Paul, Scripture, & Ethics: A Study of 1 Corinthians 5-7 (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1994). A paraphrase is used and there is exploration of the relevent Old Testament background and the relationship with Matthew 18:15-20. Rosner identifies 3 reasons why an Israelite might be excluded from God’s covenant people which Tuohy includes.
