4 “I have become all things to all, to save at least some” (1 Corinthians 9:22)

5 Chapter 10 People of the past = examples for us Example : the Israelites Avoid evil things, such as idolatry Respect other religions, but do not tend to them if they are idolatrous

6 “God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

7 Chapter 11 men and women are made for each other schisms were occurring in the church misunderstanding of true meaning of Lord’s supper

8 “Since we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.” (1 Corinthians 11:32)

9 Chapter 12 Paul states we are all united under holy spirit Spirit is expression of wisdom Diverse population because that’s how god wanted it There is a part of the holy spirit in all All connected through the holy spirit.

10 I Corinthians 12: 12-13 “ As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons, and we were all given to drink of one Spirit.”

11 Chapter 13 Love is patient Love is kind Love is not selfish Love is not ill tempered Love bears and endures all things Love is the foundation of all

12 I Corinthians 13:1-3 “If I speak in human and angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

13 Chapter 14 Pursue love but maintain spirit Appreciate the prophecy Private speech is important speech Tongues are for non believers

14 I Corinthians 14:18-19 “I give thanks to God that I speak in tongues more than any of you, but in the church I would rather speak five words with my mind, so as to instruct others also, than ten thousand words in a tongue.”

15 Chapter 15 Jesus died to save us The last enemy is death Paul argues some basic Christian practices Paul explains diversity

16 I Corinthians 15:3-6 “For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures; that he appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more then five hundred brothers at once, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.”

17 Chapter 16 Paul’s ideas to unify jews and gentiles Retouches his beliefs End his series of letters
