  7. 1st Epistle to the Corinthians • Schisms are Wrong1-6 • True wisdom vs. the “Foolishness of God” • Human teachers are but stewards • Replies to other problems7-11 • Marriage, Meats, Lord’s Table, etc • Spiritual Gifts12-14 • Resurrection15

  8. True Wisdom For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence1 Corinthians 1:26-29

  9. The “Foolishness” of God? • Noah’s Ark? • Blood on the doorposts in Egypt? • Brazen Serpent in the wilderness? • Trumpets around Jericho? • The Creator of the Universe making His entrance riding a donkey? • A group of unlettered fishermen to overturn the entire Roman world?

  10. The Ultimate Foolishness? For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.1 Corinthians 1:18

  11. Stewardship • Salvation vs. Rewards • Two Foundations: Gold, Silver, Precious stones vs. Wood, Hay, Stubble • To be tried by fire • Inheritances are forfeitable • The Metachoi, or Koinonos: partakers

  12. Spiritual Gifts1 Corinthians 12 - 14 • The Spirit divides them as He will12 • Diversity of Gifts but one Spirit 4-11 • Diversity of members but one body 12-27 • Diversity of service but one church 28-31 • They are valueless without Love13 • The utter necessity of Love 1-3 • The moral excellency of Love 4-7 • The abiding supremacy of Love 8-13 • The greatest of them is prophecy14 • It most edifies the Church 1-22 • It most convinces outsiders 23-28 • Its use should be orderly 29-40

  13. Fruits rather than Gifts Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

  14. The Characteristics of Love Love suffereth long, and is kind; Love envieth not; Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, Seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, Believeth all things, Hopeth all things, Endureth all things…1 Corinthians 13:4-7

  15. What is the “Gospel”? Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that 1) Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; 2) And that he was buried, 3) and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

  16. The Resurrection1 Corinthians 15 • Most Important Chapter in the Bible • Jurassic Park offers a glimpse • Basic building blocks are fungible elements • Only unique requirement: information (DNA) • Jesus’ Resurrection as a model • Tangible • Hyperdimensional (spacially transcendent)

  17. Corruption Incorruptible Dishonor Glory Weakness Power Physical Spiritual Earthly Heavenly Flesh-and-blood Transcendent Mortal Immortal Seven Transitions From To

  18. A Translated Generation Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.1 Corinthians 15:51-53

  19. Dimensional Equivalence? Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.1 John 3:2

  20. 2 Corinthians • Titus brings a disturbing report • Detractors attack Paul’s character • Opponents hint at cowardice, etc. • Insinuate doubts about credentials, etc. • Paul is forced to respond for the health of the Gospel there and throughout the region • “An impassioned self-defense of a wounded spirit to erring and ungrateful children”

  21. 2nd Epistle to the CorinthiansChrist Our Comfort Amid Trial • Paul’s Account of his Ministry1-5 • Motive 1-2 • Message 3-5 • Paul’s Appeal to his Converts6-9 • Things Spiritual 6, 7 • Things Material 8, 9 • Paul’s Answer to his Critics10-13 • Critics and their pretensions • The Apostle and his credentials

  22. CorinthFour Letters & Three Visits A) When the church was founded 1) The "Previous Letter" (Household of Chloe visit Paul, with a letter from Corinth) 2) "1st Corinthians” (“2nd”) B) The "Painful" visit 3) The "Severe Letter” (Lost…) (Titus' report: received well.) 4) "2nd Corinthians” (“4th” + fragments?) C) 3rd visit

  23. Galatians • Polemic Against Gospel Perversion • Romans to be grounded in doctrine • Corinthians to be guided in practice • Galatians to be guarded against error • Paul had visited twice before writing • 2nd visit far less reassuring than the 1st • Remonstrates them against errors • “Another [heteros] Gospel…”

  24. The Epistle to the GalatiansLiberation Through the Gospel • Authenticity of the Gospel1, 2 • Genuine as to its origin 1 • Genuine as to its nature 2 • Superiority of the Gospel3, 4 • The new relation it effects 3 • The privileges it releases 4 • The True Liberty of the Gospel5, 6 • Love-service ends Law-bondage 5:1-15 • Spirit ends flesh-bondage 5:16-6:10

  25. Catalog of Compromises • Faith vs. Works • Grace vs. Law • Spirit vs. Flesh • Truth vs. Error • Church vs. State • Christianity vs. Paganism • Christ vs. Pseudo-christ

  26. Flesh vs. Spirit • Abraham 430 years before the Law Promises preceded the Law: cannot be disannulledGalatians 3:17 • Ishmael vs. Isaac • Two sons of two principles: Flesh; Spirit • Ishmael: of the flesh, in unbelief • The son of the bondwoman will not be heir… • Isaac: of promise, in response to faith • The Ultimate Triumph: the offering of IsaacGalatians 4:21-32

  27. My Heart My Neighbor My God Fruits of the SpiritHow’s Your Love-life? • Love • Joy • Peace • Longsuffering • Gentleness • Goodness • Faith • Meekness • Self-Control Love exulting Love reposing Longsuffering: Passive Longsuffering: Active Faith toward God Faith in the life

  28. Four “Bearings” • Fruit-bearing 5:22-23 • 9 Fruits of the Spirit • Burden-bearing 6:2 • Bear one another’s burdens • Seed-bearing 6:7 • Whatsoever a man sows… • Brand-bearing 6:17 • I bear the marks of the Lord Jesus…

  29. Brand (mark)-Bearing 1) Slaves: mark of ownership 2) Soldiers: mark of allegiance 3) Criminals: mark of conviction 4) Abhorred: mark of reproach 5) Devotees: mark of consecration Paul’s Body: All Five!

  30. The Summary Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?Galatians 3:3

  34. Foreordained According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: Eph 1:4 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, Eph 1:5

  35. Redemption In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;Ephesians 1:7

  36. Sealed In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory Ephesians 1:13, 14

  37. Our Salvation For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8, 9, 10

  38. His Ultimate Purpose …That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.Ephesians 2:7

  39. The Mystery Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. Matt 11:11 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John Matt 11:13

  40. A Mystery RevealedEphesians 3:1-12 • Not the Gospel. It was no secret that: • Christ was to come, bear the sins of the many, to be a Prince and a Savior to both Jews and Gentiles; that the Holy Spirit was to be poured out; that remission of sins to be preached; Throne of David, etc. • An entirely new thing: to make of both the Jew and Gentile a new Body of fellow heirs: the Church

  41. The “Body” of Christ How that by revelation He made known unto me the mystery… Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same Body, and partakers of His promise in Christ by the gospel:Ephesians 3:3-6

  42. Hope of His CallingEphesians 2:18 • Resurrection and Immortality 1 Cor 15 • Joint reign with Christ Rom 15, Rev 3:21 • Eternal inheritance in Heaven Col 1:5 1 Pet 1:4 • Perfect transformation into the Rom 8:29 image of Christ 1 John 3:2 Rev 22:3-5

  43. 4 Dimensions? That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.Ephesians 3:18

  44. (Ranks of Angels) Our Cosmic Warfare For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but • against principalities, • against powers, • against the rulers of the darkness of this world, • against spiritual wickedness in high places.Ephesians 6:12

  45. Our Imperative Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.Ephesians 6:11 Be completely armed Before the battle begins...

  46. Spiritual Armor For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.Ephesians 6:12

  47. Our Armor Ephesians 6 • Girded with Truth • Breastplate of Righteousness • Feet shod with preparation • Shield of Faith • Helmet of Salvation • Sword of the Spirit • Our Heavy Artillery: Prayer

  48. Our Imperative Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.Ephesians 6:10 Imperative Mood: This is a command Present Tense: Be continually strong Passive Voice: You receive the action

  49. PhilippiansResources thru Suffering • Christ in our Life1 • Christ our Mind2 • Christ our Goal3 • Christ our Strength4

  50. Resources during Suffering For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain Philipians 1:21 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Philippians 3:7 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me Philippians 4:13 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
