The lesson on September 14, 2014 was part 1 of the "First Corinthians" study. We learn why we should study Corinthians... to learn about speaking in tongues 1Cor 12-14; factions within the church 1:11,12; abuses of the Lord's supper 1Cor 11; taking of believers to law before the unbeliever 6:1-8; food and idols 8:1-3; marriage and how it should work in the "time is short" age of the Acts 7:1-40 and denying the resurrection 15:12. This lesson looks at the first 9 verses and shows what Paul is communicating to the Corinthian church during the book of Acts. The scripture reading was from John 5:36-36 KJV "36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. 37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. 38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not."

Why study the book of First Corinthians? This book gives a good look into the Acts economy and to the personality of Paul. When we study this epistle we will appreciate many issues of the first ministry of Paul during a time when Israel was first and God was respecting and honouring his covenanted people, the nation of Israel. Many issues of today relate directly to the topics addressed in this epistle such as speaking in tongues 1Cor 12-14; factions within the church 1:11,12; abuses of the Lord's supper; taking of believers to law before the unbeliever 6:1-8; food and idols 8:1-3; marriage and how it should work in the "time is short" age of the Acts 7:1-40 and the issue of people denying the resurrection 15:12. The context of these issues and how Acts 28 clarifies these problems will be of import to all of us. There are many histories written concerning the ancient town of Corinth and it's immoral temple. We will skip over this for now and discuss only those issues from ancient history as they impringe on the context of the passages we discuss.

    At this point in my studies I believe Paul baptized Judeans(Crispus & Stephanas) and Gentile proselytes (Gaius?) under the Kingdom Gospel at Corinth because it was required. Once Mystery program instituted later on, no water baptism for anyone until Kingdom resumes.
