The lesson on June 28, 2015 was part 33 of the “First Corinthians” study.  This lesson continues with the conclusion of chapter 13 and continues to study the “in part” aspect of the Corinthian church.  We also looked the Greek word Paul used regarding “to destroy” in verse 8.  Every use of the verb in the New Testament is by Paul except for one, which was in Luke 13:7.  When you look at this first occurrence, it brings in a great parallel of the fig tree and it’s lack of producing fruit.  The judgement performed upon this fig tree was after the farmer tended the ground for some time to confirm that it would not produce fruit.  Much like the Lord did during the Acts period and upon the end in Acts 28, judgement was given to Israel.  The scripture reading was in 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.”
