The Resurrection of the Dead

1 Corinthians 15:12-19 Having just provided evidence of the bodily resurrection of Christ, Paul poses this question: “How can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?” Pastor Rod Bunton looks at the implications of denying the bodily resurrection and ends with the good news: Christ has been raised from the dead and we will be, too!

The Eyewitnesses of the Resurrection of Christ

1 Corinthians 15:5-11 Continuing his discourse on the importance of the resurrection of Christ, Paul turned to the evidence supporting the event. Pastor Rod Bunton reviews the list of eyewitnesses of the literal, bodily resurrection of Jesus — all of whom became the best equipped preachers of the Gospel.

The Importance of the Resurrection of Christ

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Paul turned to the Gospel in Chapter 15 and started by establishing the elements of it that matter. Pastor Rod Bunton reviews these details and reminds us that if Christ did not rise from the dead, our faith is worthless.

Scriptures are the Authority

1 Corinthians 14:33b-40 In keeping with his focus on orderly worship, Paul addressed an issue with women speaking in the church service. Pastor Rod Bunton explores this highly controversial topic, particularly in our modern culture, and reminds us that the only true authority is the word of God and it commands the roles that we take in worship and in our daily lives.

Mature Understanding of Tongues

1 Corinthians 14:20-33 One of the problems affecting the Corinthian church was chaos during worship. Pastor Rod Bunton explains that Paul addressed this as a maturity issue regarding both tongues and the worship service in general.

Intelligibility of the Gift of Tongues

1 Corinthians 14:1-19 Paul continues to correct the behavior of the Corinthian church and turns to the gift of tongues which was being misused. Pastor Rod Bunton gives us a straightforward understanding about this issue that centers on the intelligibility of the one speaking in tongues.

Love Never Fails

1 Corinthians 13:8-13 Paul concludes Chapter 13 by pointing out that the sign gifts of prophecies, tongues, and knowledge will pass away. Pastor Rod Bunton echoes the conclusion that unlike those gifts and even faith and hope, love will never pass away.

What Love Does, Part 5

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 As Paul concludes his teaching about describing love to the Corinthian church, Pastor Rod Bunton also concludes his examination of what true love looks like in action by covering the last six areas and makes an application about our own lives that is very convicting.

Gender Theory and the Bible

Past Rod Bunton concludes his short series of topical lessons, this time tackling the increasingly prevalent topic of gender identity.

What Love Does, Part 4

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 As Paul continues in his teaching about love to the Corinthian church, Pastor Rod Bunton continues to examine what true love looks like in action by how love is not provoked and does not hold a grudge.

What Love Does, Part 3

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Paul uses Chapter 13 to remind the Corinthians that God wants us to look like Jesus, therefore we should love like Jesus. Pastor Rod Bunton continues to examine what true love looks like in action by covering rudeness and selfishness.
