I think 1Corinthians 12-14 are some of the most profound chapters in the letter. In correcting the Corinthians’ view of speaking in tongues, Paul gives us a valuable perspective we can apply to many important issues in life. I’m grateful to finally have a chance to teach through them.
Here’s where you can find some of our local churches during the COVID closures. If you visit them online now, when the closures are over, you’ll feel right at home going in person.
I hope thinking through the issues surrounding communion has been as meaningful for you as it has been for me. But I’m really looking forward to what’s coming next! 1Corinthians 12-14 has been on my bucket list of “things I want to teach” for a long time!
Thanks for the awesome feedback on the 1Corinthians 11 head covering passage! I hesitated to put my views out there given the controversial nature of the passage. But your feedback has been worth it! Now it’s on to the Lord’s Supper and then spiritual gifts. THANKS for listening!
My 2020 goals are to: 1) break 500 podcasts (currently at 479) and 2) pass 150,000 downloads (currently 121,159). I need your support! Please subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend about it.
The podcast is on break for the holidays. In the meantime, please listen to a previous episode or series. May I suggest one of these:
After 10 chapters in 27 podcasts on 1Corinthians, I’ll be taking a break for the holidays. But we will tackle the head covering passage when the podcast returns in January. THANKS for listening!
I’m grateful for your involvement with Wednesday in the Word.
I admit I was dreading the meat sacrificed to idols section (1Corinthians 8-10). How could that possibly be relevant today? Now I wish I’d studied it years ago! I hope you’re finding it as challenging and engaging as I am. October milestones: We set a new record for subscribers in one month, and we hit podcast #475! How should we celebrate #500?
In 1Corinthians 7 Paul turns to God’s purpose for sexuality and his discussion could be the “poster child” for the importance of understanding the context. I hope you’re enjoying 1Corinthians as much as I am. I’m particularly encouraged by your emails, tweets, and the many new subscribers! I love hearing from you!
