Workshop on "The teachings of St. Paul -- useful today for church guidance"

Part 3 - Teachings attributed to Jesus in the writings of Paul

by Robert Nguyen Cramer


1Th 4:9 (TEV) - There is no need to write to you about love for your fellow-believers. You yourselves have been taught by God how you should love one another.

1Th 4:15-17 (TEV) - What we are teaching you now is the Lordís teaching: we who are alive on the day the Lord comes will not go ahead of those who have died. There will be the shout of command, the archangelís voice, the sound of Godís trumpet, and the Lord himself will come down from heaven. Those who have died believing in Christ will rise to life first; then we who are living at that time will be gathered up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord.

1Co 7:10,11 (TEV) - For married people I have a command which is not my own but the Lordís: a wife must not leave her husband; but if she does, she must remain single or else be reconciled to her husband; and a husband must not divorce his wife.

1Co 9:14 (TEV) - In the same way, the Lord has ordered that those who preach the gospel should get their living from it.

1Co 11:23-25 (TEV) - For I received from the Lord the teaching that I passed on to you: that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took a piece of bread, gave thanks to God, broke it, and said, ďThis is my body, which is for you. Do this in memory of me.Ē In the same way, after the supper he took the cup and said, ďThis cup is Godís new covenant, sealed with my blood. Whenever you drink it, do so in memory of me.Ē

[1Co 14:37-38 (TEV) - If anyone supposes he is Godís messenger or has a spiritual gift, he must realize that what I am writing to you is the Lordís command. But if he does not pay attention to this, pay no attention to him.
