1 Corinthians 15:29-58 – The Resurrection Will Happen

Resurrection Will Happen; Our Future Bodies Are Different From Our Present Bodies; Not Everyone Will Die; Stand Firm And Serve The Lord We live in a fallen world that is satanically controlled and is in rebellion against God and is under a curse. One of the worst things about life in this world is death. Death is like a poisonous

1 Corinthians 15:1-28 – The Gospel And The Resurrection

There are many religions, many philosophies, many ideologies in the world, all competing for our allegiance. The Gospel is the greatest message of them all. While other messages are a mixture of truth and error, the Gospel message is completely true. Knowing the Good News and then being faithful to live according to the Good News meets our greatest needs.

1 Corinthians 14:26-40 – Order In His Court!

Introduction: This morning we are continuing in our study of Rabbi Paul’s first letter to the believers in Corinth. The Corinthian church was in all kinds of disarray, and reading through the letter sometimes feels like having to have a tooth extracted. It seems long and drawn out, and painful. But these things were written as much for our benefit

1 Corinthians 14:1-25 – The Art Of Public Speaking

Shabbat Shalom.  This morning, Lord willing, we will be covering 1 Corinthians 14:1-25. I have entitled this message, The Art of Public Speaking, after one of my textbooks in college, because this section serves as an important lesson on how we should speak and teach in our services. However, before we begin this section of Rabbi Paul’s letter it is

1 Corinthians 13 – What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Shabbat Shalom.  Last week we continued our series through 1 Corinthians with a message on chapter 12 given by Rabbi Glenn.  Aptly titled, Nitroglycerine in the Hands of Toddlers, Rabbi Glenn pointed out how this chapter of 1 Corinthians has been misused and misunderstood by Messiah’s Community.  1 Corinthians 12 is not about cataloging all spiritual gifts but is really

1 Corinthians 12 – Nitroglycerin in the Hands of Toddlers

Introduction If ever there was a chapter of the Bible that was frequently misunderstood, and that misunderstanding led to contention in Messiah’s Community, I’d say 1 Corinthians 12 is it. This chapter outlines the gifts of the Holy Spirit; misinterpreted and/or misapplied, it’s like theological nitroglycerine. Handle with care! Considering how much division there is about the gifts of the

1 Corinthians 11:17-34 – The Problem Of Division; Problems With The Lord’s Supper

Mary Poppins said: Just a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down. And she was right. Receiving correction, like taking medicine, can be unpleasant. Commendation, however, is like sugar. When people are commended, they are more receptive to the one who is doing the commending. And they are more receptive to the other things he wants to communicate, even

1 Corinthians 9:24-10:13 – Living For The Lord And Living For The Gospel

Because of the catastrophe that took place in Eden, human beings are alienated from God, who is the source of life. Because we joined the rebellion of the fallen angels, the authority to rule humanity was transferred to Satan and the demons. Satan, the leader of the fallen angels, became the god of this world. Because of the fall of

1 Corinthians 11:1-16 – The Roles Of Men And Women In Messiah’s Community; Covering Or Not Covering The Head

The subject of today’s message is controversial - the role of men and women in Messiah’s Community, and how they are to conduct themselves. What are men allowed to do? What are women allowed to do? Is there anything they are not allowed to do? Must they cover their heads in a worship service? These are the issues the Rabbi

1 Corinthians 10:14-11:1 – Flee From Idolatry; Follow Paul’s Example

Rabbi Paul knows that Messiah’s Community in Corinth was doing well in many ways, but was also facing temptations, which, if yielded to, would harm the community. One temptation: testing God by complaining about the leaders. Instead of being thankful for all of the leaders, and supporting all the leaders, many of the people in Corinth were supporting a favored

1 Corinthians 9:1-23 – Supporting Godly Leaders

Paul Defends Himself From The Criticism That He Is Not Worthy Of Being Supported As A Leader; He Had The Right To Be Supported But Chose Not To Use That Right Because of the Fall, human beings are alienated from God, and alienated from one another. Humanity is broken, fractured, disunified. We are divided along many lines - language, geography,

1 Corinthians 7:25-8:13 – Marriage; Singleness; Widows; Idolatry; Love Is Greater Than Knowledge

The community had written Paul a letter. One of the matters they wrote about was about male/female relationships. This part of Paul’s letter is his response. In the earlier part of this chapter, the Rabbi had instructed Messiah’s followers in Corinth about marriage, singleness and divorce. Paul continues with the subject of marriage. Now about virgins: I have no command

1 Corinthians 7:1-24 – Marriage; Singleness; Divorce; Remaining In One’s Life-Situation

The Corinthian community had previously written Paul a letter. One of the matters they wrote about was about male/female relationships. This part of Paul’s letter is his response. When Paul wrote this letter, the culture of Corinth, like our culture today, was not teaching people the truth about sex. Corinth known for the sexual promiscuity of its people. In addition

1 Corinthians 6 Part 2 – Limits To Liberty; Reasons To Avoid Sexual Immorality

Christianity is about Christ. Messianic Judaism is about Messiah; having a close, personal relationship with the Messiah. It’s about having the Spirit of the Father and the Son living in us, teaching us, guiding us, transforming us into the likeness of Yeshua. The emphasis of the New Covenant is faith, not law. It’s about walking by the Spirit, not a

1 Corinthians 6:1-11 – I’ll See You in Court!

(or: how to completely destroy your credibility) Don’t you just love it when you hear a Christian (usually one with a pride issue) claim that there aren’t any good churches and say something like, “I want to be part of an authentic ‘New Testament’ church.” My response is, “Oh really?

The Corinthians Needed To Support All The Leaders Because Of The Nature Of Spiritual Leadership; They Needed To Support All the Leaders, Not Judge Them; They Were Proud And Needed To Humble Themselves; They Needed To Imitate Paul And The Other Apostles; They Needed To Receive Paul’s Correction Or Experience Unpleasant Consequences When He Arrived There is so much division

Spiritual Maturity Versus Spiritual Immaturity; The Need To End Their Divisions And Unite Around All The Leaders; Leaders Need To Be Careful To Have Messiah-Centered Ministries There are levels of spiritual maturity. Messiah’s followers should desire to be spiritually mature, not immature. The Rabbi lets the Corinthians know that they were spiritually immature when he had been with them, and

A Simple Message Focusing On Messiah Crucified; God’s Wisdom Versus The World’s Wisdom; The Spirit Gives Us God’s Wisdom; The World Can’t Understand God’s Wisdom. People are impressed by the rich and famous and powerful; by those with extra-ordinary beauty or strength or intelligence or talent. The ancient Greeks were impressed by the beauty and strength of the human body,

1 Corinthians 9:23-10:13

Paul was perhaps the greatest evangelist of all time. He had an unquenchable passion to bring the Good News about the Messiah, the Good News that Yeshua of Nazareth is the Messiah, the Son of God who was sent by God the Father, from Heaven to Earth. The Son of God became a man, died on a cross, and was
