This week we are going to wrap up our series on the Gifts of the Spirit in the local church. We will unpack 1 Corinthians 14:26-40. This section brings all of Paul’s teaching together in some simple and straightforward exhortations, but includes a very controversial section (the role of women in 33b-35).
Have a read through 1 Corinthians 14:26-40 and think through the following:
- What truths that Paul has taught in the last 3 chapters are summed up here?
- On what, or in whom, is Paul’s teaching on public worship based (v33)?
- Is it consistent with the context of 1 Corinthians and the Bible to say that women should always be silent in a church gathering? What do you think Paul is actually teaching here (v33b-35)?
See you Sunday!
