The lesson on June 21, 2015 was part 32 of the “First Corinthians” study.  In the previous lesson, chapter 12 was completed and this lesson uses part b of verse 31 to “…shew I unto you a more excellent way”.  This lesson covers chapter 13 and we learn of that excellent way(or road) in the context of the Acts period which involved charity. We continue to learn how a body of Christ described in Corinthians is not the same body that PAul the prisoner describes in Ephesians.  The body of Christ in Ephesians has Christ as the head, which we are to hold.  The bodies in Corinthians were bodies of believers with certain gifts that were consistent with the Acts period.  Some gifts were better than others and were not permanent.  After Acts 28, a new revelation was revealed that was hidden in God before the foundation of the world to the Gentiles.  The scripture reading was from 1 Corinthians 13:8-13 KJV

“8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
