1 Corinthians 15

May 15, 2010

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time…

    So how come on the day of Pentecost there were only 120 waiting (Acts 1:15, 2:1)?

    Where were the other 380 ?

  3. V.19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.

    When I first become a Christian I didn't understand this verse. I was so blessed to be a Christian – heaven didn't really matter. But these days I understand what Paul means a whole lot more. There are a lot of sacrifices one makes being a Christian. On difficult days you tell yourself – Yes, it is worth it.

  5. v.32 If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus for merely human reasons, what have I gained?

    This is a similar thought to v.19 "if it is only for this life we have hope…"

    Help us, Lord, to keep the eternal perspective in mind at all times.

  7. v.30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour?

    I seem to keep coming back to the same thought, which is we make sacrifices here and now because we know this is not all there is.

    Special verse of mine!
    v.58
    Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.

  11. Thanks Alison, it's a very encouraging verse. It again brings out, what seems to be the theme of this chapter, that our labour is not in vain because this life is not all there is.

  13. v.56-57 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Jesus gives us victory because he fulfilled (completed) the law and we have victory through him.

    The power of sin is broken, hallelujah!

  15. v.23 But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.

    God is a God of order, "each in turn". I like that God is organized! He knows what he is doing, he has it all in hand.
