Some scholars, such at Dominick Crossan and Marcus Borg suggest that 1 Cor. 14:33-36 is a later insertion, for if you remove this passage, the subject of prophecy in 14:26-33 picks up naturally at 14:37-40. Furthermore, the insertion is given as a separate paragraph in all Greek manuscripts. The silencing of women in church contradicts the general attitude ...

The One God is the Father. The One Lord is Jesus Christ. This language is being used to differentiate between the two. Paul was a monotheist and died more than a hundred years before the word "trinitas" was even thought up. That terminology is anachronistic if you want to describe Paul's belief system. This is however a controversial passage even among ...

The mistranslation of this passage is a stronghold In order to understand this passage (and indeed, in order to understand Paul) it is necessary to tear down a "stronghold". What is a "stronghold"?

They took for themselves wives from the non believer people... but, they were married, so it was legit, right? Uh uh. Nope. Not even close. So, when a believer, who could keep his Virgin( Which is by ...

In the New Testament yeast is often a symbol of evil or corruption. See Mt 16:6, Lk 12:1, Gal. 5:9 and Mark 8:15. Paul is talking to the Corinthian church in this passage and is addressing a sin issue that is allowed to continue. He is telling them that they are new and need to get rid of the old, i.e. the sinful actions that are allowed to continue in ...

In short, it means not everyone will wait between death and resurrection. Sleep here refers to death. When we die, the body stays here on Earth, and the spirit goes to the spirit world. Most people must wait some time in the spirit world before their spirit can reunite with their body at their resurrection. It may also be the case, however, that people can ...

Most, but not all, translations understand πάντες οὐ κοιμηθησόμεθα to mean 'not all of us will die' (some might), rather than 'all of us will not die (none of us will die). However, the usual word order to express 'not all' would be οὐ πάντες, and this order appears multiple times in 1 Corinthians. For example: 1 Corinthians 6:12 12 Πάντα μοι ...

From the context, Paul's words "unworthy manner" refer to the particular issue that had arisen in Corinth, described in vv.20ff and 33f: 20 Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper. 21 For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk. 22 What! Do you not have ...

The answer lies in the final verse you quoted. Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world. 1 Corinthians 11: 28-32 This indicates that the purpose of this "judgement" is to save the person. Punishment of this sort is a type of correction/discipline meant ...

He: gave thanks for the bread broke the bread and invited the disciples to eat it in order to recall his body that was about to be ...

Paul is addressing two audiences that he serves: the natural [only] man the complete man (man with God's imparted breath/spirit) He puts the Corinthians in category 1 when he first made his entrance: 1Co 2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 1Co 2:2 For I ...
