Come Follow Me for Sept 16-22 - 2nd Corinthians 8-13

Discussion of the final chapters of Paul’s final epistle to the saints in Corinth. In chapters 8 and 9 Paul asks the Corinthian saints to be generous in helping saints in Jerusalem who are impoverished, and from these teachings we learn about the atonement, and our relationships with Christ and others. Paul’s notion of equality is not that all are or have the same, but rather all contribute their talents to the body of Christ so that all can benefit. We must give of what we have cheerfully...

Discussion of the first seven chapters of Paul’s second surviving epistle to the saints in Corinth (there were others that we no longer have). The two main themes of these chapters are Paul’s attempt to convince the saints that he is a legitimate messenger of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how to endure trials to draw closer to God and help others to do the same. Paul continues to preach against the Judaizers, those that would have Christian converts convert first to Judaism before accepting...

Final discussion of Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthian saints. Paul encourages the saints to prophecy, which is to share their testimonies of Jesus Christ using words that everyone can understand, so that all that hear them within the church will be edified. He reiterates the truthfulness and importance of the resurrection, teaching that if we don’t believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are missing the point of Jesus Christ. Christ is the only means of overcoming death, and...

Second discussion of Paul’s first epistle to the saints in Corinth. In response to the problems that were plaguing the branch, Paul instructs the members to have greater charity for each other. Every member is important because each has spiritual gifts to contribute to the body of Christ, and so as members we should be careful that our actions are not offensive to other members, even if we don’t think we are doing anything wrong. Paul also teaches about the importance of charity and that we...

Discussion of the beginning of Paul’s first epistle to the saints in Corinth (it was actually his second!). The Corinthian saints were struggling with a number of issues, foremost were dissensions caused by the members trying make place for differing philosophies that were not focused on, and in some cases were inconsistent with, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The philosophies he specifically calls out are those that try to justify sexual impurity. Paul compares the church to a building, a...

Discussion of the final part of Paul’s epistle to the saints in Rome. Continuing where we left off in the last lesson, Paul continues to expound upon the need for grace in order for everyone to be saved, both Jew and Gentile. Once we accept Jesus Christ, our relationship with the law and commandments change and we no longer need live in fear that violating the law will disqualify us from the love of God, but rather we live in “the glorious liberty of the children of God” (8:21) and strive to...

Discussion of the beginning of Paul’s epistle to the saints in Rome. Paul’s letter is intended to help his listeners understand that everyone, both Jew and Gentile, is in need of salvation, and that salvation comes only by the grace of God as manifest through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We discuss the relationship between works, faith and grace in the context of Paul’s writing, concluding that faith does not mean a mere expression of belief, but faithfulness to Christ and the maintenance of...
