1 Corinthians 12b – One Body Many Members

In chapter 12 “Sha’ul first deals with the diversity of gifts in the one body of Messiah, [and then addresses] the problem of the people’s taking pride in having this or that gift from the Spirit, or feeling inferior because they don’t have it.” In chapter 13, “he describes the ‘best way’ to live a […]

1 Corinthians 12a – Spiritual Gifts

These next three chapters are all about the things of the Ruach. David Stern puts it this way, “Sha’ul first deals with the diversity of gifts in the one body of Messiah (12:1-12:31a), apparently addressing the problem of the people’s taking pride in having this or that gift from the Spirit, or feeling inferior because […]

1 Corinthians 11 – Headship, Head Coverings and Messiah’s Table

Two weeks ago, I was asked about a statement I had made about the Man being the priest in the home. I have searched the Scriptures and have not found a single reference to this. It is true that all priests were men, but it is also true that all priests were physical descendants of […]

1 Corinthians 10 – Israel’s History, Warnings and Directions

Today we close out the section on idolatry. Sha’ul uses specific examples from Israel’s history in the Torah that demonstrate Adonai’s response toward the idolatry of His own people. He then moves on to explain the reasons behind why participating in idol sacrifices must not be done. Then he closes out with some practical advice. […]

As we mentioned last week, chapter 8 frames the problem of eating meat sacrificed to idols and our freedom in Messiah, chapter 9 has Sha’ul giving himself as an example, and chapter 10 provides examples from Israel’s history, warnings and directions.

1 Corinthians 7 – Marriage & Living as we are Called

It is with great trepidation that I seek to share these words of Sha’ul and Yeshua. Although I can not repent of behalf of all the evils that have been done because of misogyny, I can repent for my part. I can also confess that the sins that have been committed by men against women […]

1 Corinthians 6 – Freedom in Messiah, Gnosticism and Sexual Behavior

Freedom in Messiah vs. Freedom to Sin When we began the teaching of 1 Corinthians, we discussed several literary characteristics that are part of this letter.[i] One of these has to do with the “sayings of the Corinthians.”[ii] These sayings include direct quotes from previous correspondence which Sha’ul prefaces by saying, “One of you says” […]

1 Corinthians 6 – Disputes and Morality

Here is the Video link for PART 1 and PART 2 of the teaching.  This chapter seems to be still answering the issues that Chloe’s household brought up. The believers were taking each other to civil court for a variety of issues. Also, this chapter contains one of my favourite passages. [Read 1 Cor. 6][i] […]

Thomas Aquinas (1225-74) wrote about why he felt that pride was the most grievous of all sins, “In order to overcome their pride, God punishes certain men by allowing them to fall into sins of the flesh, which though they be less grievous are more evidently shameful. … From this indeed the gravity of pride […]
