Eschatology in 1 Corinthians

The latest issue of ExpT includes some good articles on 1 Corinthians, including one by my former PhD student David Wenkel on “Kingship and Thrones for All Christians: Paul’s Inaugurated Eschatology in 1 Corinthians 4–6.”  Here’s the blurb:

The central argument presented here is that 1 Corinthians 4–6 reflects a single eschatological vision of the identity of the Corinthians. This single vision works itself out in two separate references as Paul addresses them as both ‘kings’ and ‘judges’. This conclusion is based on a fresh reading of Paul’s identification of the Corinthians as ‘kings’ in 1 Cor. 4 and ‘judges’ in 1 Cor. 6. This study proposes that these labels actually reflect a single reality based on Paul’s inaugurated eschatology.
