1Corinthians 8:1-12

Apr 12, 2010


As I mentioned in my last post, I will be publishing structures with minimal commentary. The outline usually speaks for itself anyway.  However, in this post, I couldn’t resist throwing in two notes pointing out the association of sacrificial elements such as substitution and identification.  This Pauline counter balance should not be surprising given this idolatrous sacrificial context.  I plan to follow up with other pericopes from 1Corinthians, initially those in chapters 8-10.
