Ignorance is what will cease. The “ἐκ μέρους” means that we live and operate within the present where partial knowledge prevails. We only know in part (“ἐκ μέρους”), which is why gifts such as knowledge (and/or the supernatural communication of that knowledge through foreign languages) helps to mitigate ignorance. In other words, the spiritual gift of ...

Grammatically, 1 Corinthians 13:9 is ambiguous enough that Paul could be referring to the parts of the body of Christ ("individually"). However, the context makes it clear that this is not the case and that he has the more common meaning of "partially" in mind. Paul's argument In chapter 12 of 1 Corinthians, Paul first lists a number of ...

When shall we see Jesus "face to face"? The simplest direct answer is found in Rev 22:3, 4 - No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be within the city, and His servants will worship Him. They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. To be with Jesus is the primary reward of the saved saints ...

There seems to be no theological consensus as to what Paul meant by 'perfect', in 1 Corinthians 13:10. For example: Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers: That which is perfect.—This verse shows, by the emphatic “then,” that the time when the gifts shall cease is the end of this dispensation. The imperfect shall not cease until the perfect is brought in....

1. Question Restatement : What is the Perfect in 1 Corinthians 13:10 referring to? 2. The Answer : The Perfect is the completed Word that is totally sufficient to help Believers to live thoroughly furnished unto all good works as Jesus commanded to be perfect. The Word and indwelling Spirit is His enablement to us toward that end. James advises ...

This isn't really a helpful way of thinking about prepositions, nor does it understand the syntax of ἐκ μέρους in this setting. (1) Prepositions. They are "grammatical words" and don't bear typical semantic content. They indicate relationships between other elements in an utterance. Consider this comparison of English and German, all completing the part ...

Your question is, "Does responsible exegesis of the bolded text (taking into account the larger context of the text, Paul's allusions to the OT, etc.) necessarily proves the radical Continuationist view that the 3 miraculous gifts mentioned in 1 Cor 13:8 (prophecy, speaking in tongue, and word of knowledge) are meant for all Christians in every age (...

I think the problem with suggesting 'ἐκ μέρους' is implying a part of a specific 'body' as referenced in 1 Corinthians 12:27 is firstly that there is no such mention of any 'body' in the context of the sentence: ἐκ μέρους γὰρ γινώσκομεν καὶ ἐκ μέρους προφητεύομεν· ὅταν δὲ ἔλθῃ τὸ τέλειον, τὸ ἐκ μέρους καταργηθήσεται. It is the latter half of this chunk ...

1 Corinthians 13:10 - What does “The Perfect” Refer to? Paul did not mean the completed Word of God. Paul had no use for a New Testament other than to tell the Gentile church, in Greek, what the Hebrew apostles knew and were teaching from the Old Testament. He had been taught by Jesus, and most of the NT was his own writing. Also it was not collected as a ...

8 the love never falls. but whether prophecies, they will be rendered idle; whether tongues, they will stop; whether knowledge, it will be rendered idle. 9 for we know out of part and out of part we prophesy; 10 but when the finished thing should come, the one out of part will be rendered idle. 11 when I was young, I was speaking as young, I was thinking as ...

It appears to me that the passage is a reference to the completion that takes place when we see Jesus face to face. It looks like the view that it refers to the canon came about in the 19th century through the writing of Robert Govett, 1813–1901. Gary Shogren did a nice overview of the patristic interpretation of the "perfect" that can be found ...

When shall we see "face to face"? 1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (1 Corinthians 13:12, KJV) Understanding this text requires paying attention to its contrast of seeing through "a glass" with "face to face." ...

The answer is given in the same verse, John 14:12 - the key is provided by the Greek phrase as to who will do the works of Jesus and even great things: ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ = the one believing in me Thus, as I understand it, anyone who believe in Jesus will do the same works as Jesus and even greater works. To make this clearer, many version translate thus: ...

THE COMPLETE FACE (PRESENCE) of JESUS CHRIST. 1 Corinthians 13:10. But when that which is perfect (τὸ τέλειον) is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face (πρόσωπον): now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. τὸ τέλειον at verse 10, ...

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. 1 Cor 13:12 who do we see in a mirror? Ourself. what does this have to do with seeing Christ? Let's see... The context is the believer - if I speak with the tongues... if I have the gift of prophecy... if I give away all ...

The power to heal was present in Paul's ministry as described in the book of Acts Acts 14:8 NASB 8 At Lystra a man was sitting who had no strength in his feet, lame from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. 9 This man was listening to Paul as he spoke, who, when he had fixed his gaze on him and had seen that he had faith to be [f]made well, 10 said ...

First, I am always deeply suspicious of any doctrine of the church, generally, that arose "recently" such as in the 16th century. How did the church get along before this? There are a number of such doctrines such as cessationism, futurism, etc. Second, I do not believe that 1 Cor 13 can be used to prove anything about cessationism because there ...

Note: I am the author of the C.SE answer (and the question) that prompted the OP's question. OP: Can 1 Cor 13:8-10 be used as to prove that radical Continuationism is necessarily true? I would answer most likely yes, in the sense that 1 Cor 13:8-10 offers no reason to think that the Holy Spirit would change His modus operandi before the arrival of the ...

Hebrews 2:1-4 is a discussion about the veracity and authority of what has already occurred, namely - The message of salvation brought by Jesus was NOT a false message because it was confirmed by signs, wonders, various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit Jesus was NOT a false Messiah because, by extension, His work was affirmed by God through signs, ...

Faith and hope are not gifts of the Spirit, but fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22). They do not cease but remain/abide/stay (μένει) along with love. Love is an attribute of God and will remains as it is, the greatest. Hope/waiting/expectation (ἐλπίς) will be met, no longer waiting. Faith (⸉πίστις) will be realized (Heb. 11:1). Abideth (μενει [menei]). ...

Note the distinction Paul makes between the "spiritual gifts" in 1 Cor 12:31 and the "much better" way involving the fruit of the Spirit. (Compare Gal 5:22, 23). However, let there be no doubt that, "love come from God" (1 John 4:7). However, this is fundamentally different from the spiritual gifts for a very simple reason: ...

Paul taught cessationism. The gifts will definitely cease, but the question is when. Those who are commonly known today as “Cessationists” believe that the gifts ceased upon the closing of the canon. They are right about that in the sense that no gift will alter what is currently accepted as the inspired Word of God. In other words, no prophecy that the most ...

When shall we see "face to face"? 1 Corinthians 13:12 ESV 12" For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known." When shall we see "face to face"? What is meant by this and when will this happen? Paul uses an analogy with mirrors, in Bible ...

1 Corinthians 13:10 - What Will Cease when “The Perfect” Comes? 1 Corinthians 13:8-10 (NASB) 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of [a]prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be ...

Is this dark glass the analogy of a looking glass? In ourselves we see a reflection of the person of Christ through the light of His Grace entering our thought as inspiration. Now we see His truth but not His person. Yet we know He is within us acting that we may see this truth. But does not Paul tell us that when we enter the spiritual realm of eternity, ...

The word of God is very clear on every subject. All things are possible to them that believe Mark 9:23. The word believe means to accept, to receive, to take and also to agree. Remember that God is not a man that He should lie. When Jesus said in Mark 16:17-20 that these signs shall follow those who believe. It means for any gift that you and I will receive ...

I subscribe to the view that the reason is because the gifts that he was performing in the early days was a "sign to the Jews"; not all spiritual gifts are still in operation today; or, they aren't necessarily "needed." The gift of tongues and the gift of healing has ceased. The keyword here is "gift." This isn't to say that God doesn't or won't heal today, ...

The second principal part of παύω, which provides the future stem, is παύσω. This verb, when used actively, can be transitive, and means "to stop [something/someone]". But when the verb is used in the middle voice, as it is in 1 Corinthians 13:8, it means "to cease". The future middle indicative is παύσομαι (first person singular) and the ...
