  • Transcript

    • 1. Pastor and theologian for a divided church: Saint Paul
    • 2. 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 Divisions in the Church10 Now I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you should be in agreement and that there should be no divisions among you, but that you should be united in the same mind and the same purpose.11 Forit has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there are quarrels among you, my brothers and sisters.12 What I mean is that each of you says, ‘I belong to Paul’, or ‘I belong to Apollos’, or ‘I belong to Cephas’, or ‘I belong to Christ.’13 Has Christ been divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,15 so that no one can say that you were baptized in my name.16 (I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.)17 ForChrist did not send me to baptize but to proclaim the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its power.

    • 7. 1st CorinthiansIn its general character the epistle is a strenuouswriting, masterly in its restraint in dealing withopposition, firm in its grasp of ethical and spiritualprinciples, and wise and faithful in their application. It iscalm, full of reasoning, clear and balanced in judgment;very varied in its lights and shadows, in its kindness, itsgravity, its irony. It moves with firm tread among thecommonest themes, but also rises easily into the loftiestspheres of thought and vision, breaking again and againinto passages of glowing and rhythmical eloquence. Itrebukes error, exposes and condemns sin, solvesdoubts, upholds and encourages faith, and all in a spirit ofthe utmost tenderness and love, full of grace and truth. Itis broad in its outlook, penetrating in its insight, unendingin its interest and application. (ISBE Dictionary)
