Love, Prophesy, Tongues and Knowledge

Last week I said that while it is often exciting to see these gifts of the Ruachin action, what I long for in our congregation, is that we receive and give out the love of Yeshua. Sha’ul prioritises the fruit of love above all the gifts of Prophesy, Tongues and Knowledge. Not only is this […]

1 Corinthians 13 – God’s Love shining in our hearts

I am amazed how Adonai leads me as an individual, how He confirms His Word through multiple witnesses. Now I watch Him lead our congregation, confirming his Word as we walk together. As a congregation we have been working our way through Paul’s letter to the congregation in Corinth. We find ourselves paused between Chapters […]

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. […]

1 Corinthians 9 – Self Sacrifice for the Good News

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. Sha’ul uses his own example to demonstrate how self-sacrifice can further the Kingdom of […]

1 Corinthians 8 – Idol Sacrifices

We now begin a new section in the letter to Corinth. Sha’ul is responding to the questions around meat sacrificed to idols and our freedom in Messiah. Chapter 8 frames the problem; Chapter 9 has Sha’ul giving himself as an example; Chapter 10 provides additional examples from Israel’s history, and then concludes with specific warnings […]

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] […]
