The Second Letter of Paul to the Corinthians

Exegesis Of I Corinthians 13

- Exegesis of I Corinthians 13:8-12 8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. The eternality of love is highlighted and established without question. However, in comparison prophecies and knowledge will “pass away,” tongues will “cease.” Linguistically there is no appreciable difference between “pass away” and “cease.” They are synonymous in function. It would seem that when one of these three gifts passes, they all should pass (in Eph....   [tags: New Testament, Jesus, Love]

1 Corinthians

- Paul the Apostle is the central figure in many New Testament writings. Many historians have attributed fourteen New Testament letters to Paul’s writing; seven of these letters are uncontested meaning historians are sure that Paul wrote them, the remaining seven are contested. Paul was not always a Christian; in fact, he persecuted Christians before Christ came and temporarily blinded him. Upon seeing Christ, Paul devoted his life to Christianity and set out to spread the teachings of Christ.

1 Corinthians

- 1 Corinthians 5 - A "brother" (v. 11) in the church at Corinth was having sexual relations with his father's wife. Paul described the unusual nature of this sin when he said that it was "not so much as named among the gentiles, that one should have his father's wife" (v. 1). This man's behavior was wrong, but also wrong was the tolerance of his behavior by the Corinthian church. Paul condemned these sins, and the necessary corrections were subsequently made (2 Cor. 2:6; 7:11). But what was the spiritual condition of the fornicator before his repentance....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Bible, Sin]
