In the 8th and 9th Chapters of 1 Corinthians, St. Paul moves from the discussion of food offered to idols and into an explanation of his self-sacrifice for the people of Corinth. We spent some time trying to clear up the issues of meat offered to idols and how that played out through history with the Council of Jerusalem and later the Council of Florence. We did not get quite as far in the discussion as is on the hand-out for this week (imagine that!!).
As always, the group adds SO MUCH to the study, as we wrestle with Paul’s words line-by-line!
