Explain from I Corinthians 7 how you would respond to a believer, divorced from his living wife who is not yet remarried but does not desire reconciliation, the divorce occurring while both the husband and wife were in unbelief
Paul’s overwhelming teaching is that separation and divorce, pre- or post-Christ being of no consequence (“condition when called”), are not permissible for the Christian. Again, if one was called – effectively summoned to salvation by Christ, forgiven of sin, and justified – while a divorcee, coming to Christ – being forgiven – does not change the social status. The divorcee must remain as he / she is.
Bill Galbraith suggest the central message of 2 Corinthians is ‘transformation occurs through ministry.” Give three examples of transformations in 2 Corinthians mentioned by Mr. Galbraith.
Paul was transformed through ministry, converts transformed through ministry, believers transformed through ministry.
Explain why some scholars think parts of 2 Corinthians are later insertions from non-extant letters of Paul. Based on Mr. Galbraith’s notes and lecture, and the classroom discussion, explain how would you respond to these criticisms.
Scholars believe second Corinthians are insertions because Paul jumps around when it comes to topics and fails to maintain a cohesive flow. This can be answered by the understanding that the letter is a personal, Letter, were consistency isn’t as much the purpose, as is Paul sharing his experiences, Just as regular conversation would ensue.
