This lesson walks through the text of 1 Corinthians 12:15-21. Paul tells the Corinthians that each part of the body (the church) is divinely placed by God. No part should feel inferior and has a unique function. Also, no part should think itself superior or feel that others are not necessary.
This is a textual lesson from 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 and is part of series of lessons from Paul’s letter to the church in Corinth. The christians in Corinth had been dishonoring the Lord and their fellow brethren in their observance of the Lord’s Supper. Paul is reminding them that Christ died so that they could all be one body. Being one body, they should be unified when they come together to partake in this memorial to the Lord.
This lesson is based on Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. In this text, Paul is commanding them to flee idolatry because their involvement in idolatrous feasts is a participation in evil. Even though there is no such thing as another “god”, they are “sharing” with the pagan worshippers in this evil. He also instructs Christians to do all things to God’s glory. Just because we have a right to do something, doesn’t mean it brings glory to God.
This lesson is a study of I Corinthians 10:1-13. This is part of a larger series of textual lessons on Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. In this text, Paul is warning to the Corinthians to learn from the example of the Israelites who had experienced close fellowship with God, but had lost it because of their desire for evil.
