A verse by verse study by
Dr. T.E. VanBuskirk.


   The purpose of this class is to give you a comprehensive verse by verse understanding of the book of First Corinthians.  You will study, in detail, the teachings of the book and briefly touch upon some of the heresies so prevalent today that are in contradiction to the teachings of God as revealed through the Apostle Paul to the Corinthian Church and, by extension, to all churches from the first century to today and on until the coming of our Lord.

        Student is required to read the text, "First Corinthians," by Dr. T.E. VanBuskirk and the book of First Corinthians in the Bible.  The student is required to look up and read all scriptures referenced in the textbook from the KJV Bible while completing the textbook.  There will be a final test at the end of the course.  Test will be open book.
        There are no section tests in this course.  Blanks in the scriptures in the textbook are only there to make sure you look up every scripture reference in your KJV.

    Suggested attendance for the course overall is 18 weeks .
    Suggested attendance is one (1) week per lesson (chapter).
        Actual study.  Study approximately one chapter of First Corinthians per week both in the textbook and concurrently in the King James Bible.  Some chapters will take less than a week of actual study and some will take more.  One chapter per week is the average.
