I hope you are doing well today and enjoying your Friday.
This Sunday we will kick-off a new message series from 1 Corinthians chapters 11-14 that I’m calling Life Together. And we start with a bang because this Sunday we will tackle what is hands down the most complex and at times controversial passage in the entire book of 1 Corinthians.
Listen to what Dr. Craig Blomberg says about this Sunday’s text (1 Corinthians 11:2-16): “This passage is probably the most complex, controversial, and opaque of any text of comparable length in the New Testament. A survey of the history of interpretation reveals how many different exegetical options there are for a myriad of questions and should inspire a fair measure of tentativeness on the part of the interpreter.”
Why don’t you take a moment and read 1 Corinthians 11:2-16? What are the trans-cultural principles? What are the historical particularities? What are the question marks and what are the clear, bold headlines?
Life Together in the church means all of us, men and women, have a vital role to play and a call from God He wants us to answer.
Hope to see you Sunday.
