CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE STUDIES


THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS

CHAPTER 11
 

CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE STUDY

          Welcome back to you once again! Itís a joy to have you here to share more Daily Bread. As weíve been studying the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians, weíve been learning quite a lot about the struggles that people have in their walk of Faith, and how to deal with them.

          Donít forget that there was a wide mixture of people that Paul was writing to in Corinth. Even though he was the Apostle of the Gentiles, there were still Jewish people who lived in Corinth who were converted to Christianity as well. They were many people with many different beliefs, and Paul was guiding them to one common goal ... Faith.

CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE LESSON WITH CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE TRUTH AND CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE STUDY MESSAGE

Be followers of Christ, as I am.
Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things,
and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.

          Wait a minute, what ordinances is he talking about? In the book of Acts, Luke referred to this as THE WAY. There are ďwaysĒ that Christians follow. The Christian Path ... Some examples are: Love one another, be hospitable, be meek, abstain from fornication, evil, and fleshly desires, be holy, help the fatherless and the widowed, just to name a few. Basically, living righteously, and godly is THE WAY. You may know that Jesus said,

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am THE WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

          Next, in his Christian walk Bible lesson, Paul talks about the issue of men and women having their head covered or uncovered when they pray or prophesy. He starts out by showing us the "chain of command" so to speak:


T
he head of every man is Christ;
and the head of the woman is the man;
and the head of Christ is God.

God

Christ

Man

Woman
 

To boil it all down, since the man is the image and glory of God, to cover his head would be to dishonor it. The woman, being in subjection to the man, however, should have her head covered.

1 Corinthians 11:10
For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

What in the world could that mean?

First of all, you may have guessed, the "power on her head" or the covering and/or veil symbolizes the authority of her husband.

Because of the Angels ... This may be referring to the ministering Angels which are always present, but in public it might be offensive to them since Angels themselves cover their faces before the Lord:

Isaiah 6:2
Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

And though the woman is subject to the man, they were made for each other ... They are not independent or separate from one another.
 

Genesis 2:18
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

They were meant to be a mutual comfort and blessing, not one a slave and the other an oppressor. They are a compliment to one another. And just as it is the will of God that a woman be in submission to a man, it is also His will that a man not abuse his power over a woman.

Then Paul says ... Decide for yourself, is it right for a woman to pray uncovered? He points out that society (particularly at that time) would lift an eyebrow at a woman with short hair and a man with long hair ... They might be considered as contending with their natural gender, so to speak. So, basically Paul tells them that if anyone in Corinth thinks that for a woman to appear in public unveiled ... There is no such custom in the other churches of God.        

CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE TRUTH WITH CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE INTERPRETATION

          Itís about time for a little Daily Bread Stick. This is a general rule to remember when you read your Bible. How many times do you suppose the Bible has been rewritten and translated and retranslated since it was originally written? In fact, when you read Daily Bread, youíre reading yet another "interpretation" of it, so when youíre reading the text out of your Bible and something seems awry, this may be the reason. Paul is very consistent on his teachings about law and Faith. Of that, you can be certain. So you donít have to let your hair grow long, or cut it short to please the Lord. The long and short of it all is, give Him glory in your heart. 

          I have an interesting question for you? Was Jesusí hair long? And what about the vow of the Nazarite Numbers 6:5? When a man takes the vow of the Nazarite, he is separating himself or dedicating a certain amount of time to God. Why would this holy vow forbid a man to cut his hair if it was shameful? Even though it seems this vow was voluntary, wasnít it part of the Jewish ďlawĒ, and is that shameful? Have you ever seen a picture of the last supper? Do each and every one of the Apostles have long hair? Was it a new fad to have short hair in Paul's day? Maybe. Is long hair even really the issue here or was it women being covered in public? Just more points to ponder. Now letís get back to our study.

CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE WARNINGS OF CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE DANGERS AND CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE CONCERNS

          Though there were things that Paul had applauded the Corinthians for earlier in this chapter, there was also something that disturbed him that was happening in the church of Corinth. He makes no bones about his thoughts on the matter.

When they gathered together for the Lord's supper, first of all, there were cliques among them. Remember at the beginning of the epistle when Paul warned them of the contentions they had because some believed they were baptized of Paul and some of Apollos and some of Peter? These were probably some of the cliques.

Paul points out that naturally there are divisions so that those who are upright in heart and those who are not can be exposed.

When they gathered to celebrate the "Lord's Supper," they would bring their own meals and eat separately instead of sharing together, and some were full (drunken) and others were yet hungry. Whatís this all about? Paul asks with a heavy heart. Donít you have houses to eat and to drink in ... Do you want to make the church of God look contemptible by embarrassing the needy? What can I say about this? I'm bewildered!

Does this sound like the world today, still? The lowly are still looked down upon. The wealthy still seek recognition, and even in the church, one acts better than another. Paul continues:

1 Corinthians 11:23-27
For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the
same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this
cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

But let a man judge his own actions whether he is eating in loving memory of the death of Christ or if he is eating as though it were a common meal, because he who eats unworthily, invites damnation. For this reason many are weak and sickly among you, and many have even died.

CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE UNDERSTANDING BRINGS FORTH CHRISTIAN WALK BIBLE HOPE

          Did you read that? There are so many things that we donít know. How many people, even in the world today, suffer illness and death because of actions that they donít realize are unrighteous in the Lordís eyes, yet because of todayís society, are accepted? But doe they even bother to find out? Paul says:

If we would just judge our own selves, if we would take a look at our own works, if we would take the effort to discern what is unrighteous, then we would not be judged. But when we're judged, we're chastened by the Lord, so we won't be condemned with the wicked. Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait one for another. And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; so your gathering together doesnít bring judgment. And anything else about the matter, Iíll settle when I visit.

          We can apply this Christian Walk Bible message to more than just food. What about spiritual gifts? What about those who, in the body of Christ, are the baby finger, instead of the eye? Do we, in front of others, flaunt our gifts? Do we look down on others who donít seem as important? Never forget, looks are deceiving, especially when it comes to invisible (spiritual) things.

          Speaking of spiritual gifts, thatís what our next Christian Walk Bible study is about, so be sure to hurry back for more Daily Bread.
