by pastor   06/09/2022   1_Corinthians 5:1~13



1 Corinthians 5:1-13, Key Verse 5:7

Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.”

  1. What disturbing report about the Corinthian Christians did Paul receive? (1) What should they have done about it? (2b) What did they do instead? (2a) Why?

  2. How had Paul immediately taken action? (3) On what basis did he do so? (4) What did he command them to do (see also verses 2b,11b,13), and why did they need to deal with this publicly? (4,5) What was the hope for the man through his punishment? (5b)

  3. How did the Corinthians’ pride lead them to be negligent about this man’s sin? (6) What does yeast teach about the influence of sin within the Christian fellowship? (6)

  4. Read verses 7-8. What does it mean, in the church and personally, to “get rid of the old yeast” and be a “new unleavened batch”? What makes this possible for us? (7b) What is the festival we are observing and how do we keep it? (7b, 8; Ex 12:15)

  5. How had they misunderstood earlier instructions from Paul? (9–10) What did he really mean? (11) How should a Christian deal with immoral people outside the church and inside the church? (11–13).
