The lesson on May 9, 2021 was part 14 of the "Acts - When and Why?" study. In this lesson we looked at 1 and 2 Corinthians particularly in relation to what issues Paul clarifies with the resurrection. We learned from 1 Corinthians 5:9 that Paul had written an epistle to the church at Corinth to "not to company with fornicators:" that was not included in the canon of scripture that was preserved as did the letters of 1 & 2 Corinthians did. We learned how information came to Paul when he mentions them in 1:11 "House of Chloe" and in 1 Corinthians 16:17 "I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied." in addition to the fact that Paul was inspired by God. In Corinth, resurrection was a big issue. We reviewed many passages that dealt with the two types of resurrection. The general resurrection you receive by faith when you accept Christ Jesus as your savior and the better resurrection that serves as a reward by your work of running the race (as Paul explained). Paul also addressed the two states that we all deal with, that being life and death. In his analogy, he explained that life is being clothed and death was being naked. When we are resurrected, we are clothed because we have life in Christ. The scripture reading was from 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 KJV
This study started on January 10, 2021 and looks at the book of Acts from a perspective of the Apostle Paul's epistles. It will establish when the Pauline book was written during the Acts timeline and answer why it was written in relation to the context of the Acts. This study will provide a roadmap to properly understanding the doctrine of the Acts period and how the transition to the Gentiles is observed but always in the relation to Israel and the Kingdom of God.
The writings of the author CH Welch have been and continue to be a tremendous influence on those who look for dispensational truth. One of his great and influential contributions is the doctrine concerning the "dispensational boundary of Acts 28". Over the years I have also relished the consequences of this doctrine because it brings light and explanative power to the teaching of God's word rightly divided. Let me be clear -- this doctrine basically says that Acts 28:23-31 is a dispensational landmark containing a boundary. On one side is the hope of Israel and on the other, the revelation of the mystery and the commencement of a new age with Israel divorced and lo-ammi.
