TEN REASONS PAULWROTE TO CORINTH.

AMBROSIASTER:is that some godly peoplewerein partisanship,wanting to be called followers ofPaul, of Peter or of Apollos ratherthan of Christ.

Others disagreed with all of theabove and declared themselvespartisans of Christ alone.is that theCorinthians were beginning to findwith the result that although theywere nominally Christian,

they were imbued withphilosophical notions whichwere contrary to the faith.is that theywerebecause Paul had not been tovisit them.

concernedwhom they had allowed to remain intheir midst.was Paul’s need toremind the Corinthians of a previousinstructions?

is that theCorinthianstoward one anotherand preferred to seekis that, although

so as not to set a precedent forwas that theywere beginning to be throwninto confusion by heretics onthe subject of marriage.

was his assertionthat everyone should remainsteadfast in what he had taught themto believe.concerned virgins,about whom Paul had given noinstructions.And there are other reasons as well,which will soon become apparent inthe body of the text.

in the1:4-4:21

(St JOHN CHRYSOSTOM).The letter is addressed(AMBROSIASTER)but alsotoward thefuller reception of sanctifying grace(The Scholar ORIGEN).Its instruction is not limited to theCorinthiansbut is

PRAISE BEFORE CRITICISM.ST JOHN CHRYSOSTOM:“Whoeverantagonizeshis hearers.Paulthemin order to avoid this.”

THE SCANDAL OF DIVISIONThe Corinthian church was dividedinto factions.They werein partisanship,wanting to be called followers ofPaul, of Peter or of Apollos ratherthan of Christ.Some were making Christ the head ofa faction (St CHRYSOSTOM).

Is Christ divided? (1:10-13a)Were you baptized in the name ofPaul? (vv. 13b-17)Was Paul crucified for you? (vv. 18-25)

(ST CLEMENT OF ROME).CORINTH HAD A HISTORYOF PARTISANSHIP.

(ST ATHANASIUS)GOD’S WISDOM HAS BECOMEINCARNATE.(St John CHRYSOSTOM)is a dangerousthing,for itmore.

ST JOHN CHRYSOSTOM:God did not just choosebut alsoandin order,

(St CHRYSOSTOM).When demonstration is madethe worse argument oftenthe better one,so as to encourage the arguer(St John CHRYSOSTOM).God’s wisdom is so great thatit makes human wisdom appear foolish

The Spirit indwells believers (2:12).The Spirit searches (2:10-11).The Spirit teaches (2:13).The Christian receives the things of theSpirit (2:14-16).

WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED

Where are these wordswritten?They are a paraphrase ofsome passage

ST CLEMENT OF ALEXANDRIA:(c. 150–215).Those who possess the Spiritseek outthat is,thatsurround prophecy.

ST JOHN CHRYSOSTOM:Some spiritual truths areandbut this can be done only bywhen I say thatChrist rose again,I compare this to the deliverance ofJonah from the belly of the whale.(cf. Jon 2:10)

And when I say that He wasborn of a virgin,I compare this to themiraculous childbearing ofbarren women like Sarah,Rebekah and so on.(cf. Gen 21:1–7; 25:21)

(ST JOHN CHRYSOSTOM)The mysteries of God arenot to be offeredindiscriminately,but only to those preparedfor themand to whom they are due.

It is afor Christians to bejudged by outsiders over trivialmatters(St John CHRYSOSTOM).amongthe Corinthians.(The Scholar ORIGEN),but believers will be given suchwisdom (AMBROSIASTER).

St Paul is not here giving a short listof particular sins but calling all torepentance(St John CHRYSOSTOM).Sex belongs within marriage(The Scholar ORIGEN).Adultery corrupts whole families(St IGNATIUS).

THE PILGRIMAGE OF ISRAEL ATYPE OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE

“Out of Egypt I called My Son”(Hosea 11: 1)a prophecy about the flight of the Lord Christ toEgypt (Matthew 2: 15).The Lord Christ spent 40 days in the wilderness(Matthew 4: 1 - 11),as though He was recalling the 40 years, spent bythe first Israel in the wilderness,and the 40 days, spent by the prophet Moses onMount Sinai(Ex. 24: 18).

The Holy Eucharist(Vv. 23-34)AMBROSIASTER: The Lord’s Supper isnot just a meal but spiritual medicinethat purifies recipients who partake of itreverently.The Lord’s Supper is the sacrament ofthe Lord. Everyone participates equallyin it, whether they are poor or rich,slaves or lords, rulers or ruled.

ST AMBROSE:Do you wish to know how it isconsecrated with heavenly words?Accept what the words are.The priest speaks.He says: Perform for us this oblationwritten, reasonable, acceptable,which is a figure of the body andblood of our Lord Jesus Christ .Before it is consecrated, it is bread;

but when Christ’s words have beenadded, it is the body of Christ .And before the words of Christ, thechalice is full of wine and water.When the words of Christ have beenadded, then blood is effected whichredeemed the people.

PREPARING FOR COMMUNION(11:27-34)Examining OneselfSelf-Examination Before Eucharist.Judging Oneself TrulyAvoid Future Judgment.One should come to Communionwith a reverent mind and with fear.

ST JOHN CHRYSOSTOM:It is unlawful for us to touch thetable with profane lusts, which aremore harmful than diseases.By profane lusts I mean those of thebody, of money, of anger, of malice,and so on.In your conscience, where no one ispresent except God who sees all,there judge yourself,

examine your sins.When you reflect upon your wholelife, bring your sins to the court ofthe mind.Correct your mistakes.

Unlike the gifts of the Spirit, the fruitof the spirit is not divided among us.The fruit of the spirit should mark usall, and should characterize our lives,“You will know them by their fruits.”(Matt.7:20)God expects His people to bear fruit;and they will appear even in the midstof difficulties and hardships.
