About this Series
This is a series looking at one of the Apostle Paul’s longest letters. Corinth is in modern-day Greece and was a thriving commercial centre due to its proximity to the sea. As a church it certainly had its problems. But then what church doesn’t have problems?
| 1 Corinthians 14:1-19 | Peter MacPherson |
Today’s Bible reading from 1 Cor 14 will look at two gifts of the spirit: tongues and prophecy. Both have a positive effect says Paul but in different ways. Paul’s main concern in the chapter is how to use these gifts to edify or build up the church. He is thinking of what happens in public worship gatherings. His conclusion is that prophecy has a more edifying effect because people attending the worship gathering will be able to understand what is being said.
