He's known as one of the Church's five “Apostolic Fathers,” those who provided a direct link between the Apostles and later generations of Church Fathers. Clement's First Epistle to the Corinthians was preserved and widely read in the early Church. This letter from the bishop of Rome to the Church in Corinth concerns a split that alienated a large number of the laity from the clergy. Deploring the unauthorized and unjustifiable division in the Corinthian community, Clement urged charity to heal the rift. Reflection Today many in the Church experience polarization regarding worship, how we speak of God, and other issues. We'd do well to take to heart the exhortation from Clement's Epistle: “Charity unites us to God. It knows no schism, does not rebel, does all things in concord. In charity all the elect of God have been made perfect.” Rome's Basilica of St. Clement, one of the city's earliest parish churches, is probably built on the site of Clement's home. History tells us that Pope Clement was martyred either in the year 99 or in 101. His liturgical feast is celebrated on November 23.

Why do we need Church discipline? Why can't we just people be? Do we really need to judge and guide our fellow brothers and sisters in their Christian walks? Pastor Ulysses guides us through 1 Corinthians 5:1-13 where Paul addresses the sin in the Corinthian church and teaches them to guard the fellowship against the unrepentant brother or sister by cutting ties with them. Pastor Ulysses shows us that such a prescription for church discipline is indeed instituted in the scriptures as guardrails for the Christian life.

Near the town of Andria in Puglia rising from a rock that makes it visible for miles stands entirely on its own a stone structure we call the Castel del Monte. Its ground plan is unique, and like many other of the Emperor's buildings it was probably sketched by Frederick himself: a regular octagon of yellowish limestone; its smooth perfectly-fitting blocks showing no joins and producing the effect of a monolith : at each of the eight corners a squat octagonal tower the height of the wall; two storeys identical in height, each containing eight large equal rooms, in the shape of a trapeze; an octagonal central courtyard adorned with antique sculptures and imitations of the antique, in the centre of which a large octagonal basin served as bath. Every fraction of the structure displays the mental make-up of the Hohenstaufen court: oriental massiveness of the whole, a portal foreshadowing the Renaissance, Gothic windows and rooms with groined and vaulted roofs. The defiant gloom of the tiny-windowed rooms was mitigated by the furnishings; the floors were of mosaic, the walls covered with sheets of reddish breccia or white marble, the groined vaults supported on pilasters with Corinthian capitals, or by delicate clustered columns of white marble. Majesty and grace were fused in one.Of all that remains of Frederick II nothing epitomises the personality of the great emperor more than this building, which may have been a fortification or a hunting lodge or an enormous marble crown celebrating the concept of universal imperial power. In this and the following episode we will look not at the emperor's deeds but how he lived and what he did away from the world of power politics that made the English Chronicler Matthew Paris call him Stupor Mundi, the Wonder of the World.There is an episode webpage available on my website Episode 83 - The Court of Frederick II • History of the Germans PodcastThe music for the show is Flute Sonata in E-flat major, H.545 by Carl Phillip Emmanuel Bach (or some claim it as BWV 1031 Johann Sebastian Bach) performed and arranged by Michel Rondeau under Common Creative Licence 3.0.As always:Homepage with maps, photos, transcripts and blog: www.historyofthegermans.comFacebook: @HOTGPod Twitter: @germanshistoryInstagram: history_of_the_germansReddit: u/historyofthegermansPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/Historyofthegermans

Actual Good Grief

INTRODUCTIONThere are three kinds of grief in this passage. The first is Paul's godly response to the pastoral meltdown at Corinthian. Paul had been entirely “cast down” (v. 6), and this was the troubles out of which the coming of Titus had been the deliverance. Then there is the godly sorrow and grief that follows after sin, and which results in true repentance (v. 10). But the third kind, the sorrow “of the world” leads only to death (v. 10).THE TEXT“Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man. I speak not this to condemn you: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you. Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation. For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears . . .” (2 Cor. 7:2–16).SUMMARY OF THE TEXTThe first exhortation here to “receive us” is echoing the earlier summons to open or enlarge their hearts (v. 2). Paul says he has wronged no one, corrupted no one, and defrauded no one (v. 2). This is perhaps an indication of the charges made against him. Paul is not trying to condemn the Corinthians who are on the fence—with all his heart he wants to die and live with them (v. 3) Paul is bold with them because he is overjoyed in them, and filled with comfort (v. 4). We now learn about how torn up Paul was in Macedonia—fears within, quarrels without (v. 5). But Paul was comforted two ways—the first through the coming of Titus (v. 6), and second by the news Titus brought (v. 7). Paul was greatly comforted to learn about the Corinthians “earnest desire,” their “mourning,” and their “fervent mind toward” Paul (v. 7). Although Paul made them sorry with that letter, he did not regret it now (v. 8)—although there were some moments where he did regret it. Their sorrow was just for a season (v. 8)—their sorrow was a fruitful sorrow, not a damaging sorrow (v. 9). For there are two kinds of sorrow and grief—one leads to repentance and salvation, while a worldly sorry just works death (v. 10). He then describes their godly sorrow, the components of which were diligence, clearing themselves, indignation, fear, vehement desire, zeal, and vindication (v. 11). In all this, they went above and beyond. Paul was not aiming at the ringleader in the congregation who had caused the trouble, nor was he defending himself, but rather that they might see his pastoral care for them (v. 12). This is why the news from Titus about how refreshed he was in them was so good (v. 13). When Paul had bragged about the Corinthians to Titus, this was simply the same kind of truth he spoke to them. And they had not embarrassed him (v. 14). And now Titus is warmly attached to that congregation as well (v. 15). Note that this deep affection is not inconsistent with obedience, and fear, and trembling (v. 15). The whole episode has caused Paul to rejoice in all things (v. 16).A MESS IN CORINTH, AND ANOTHER ONE IN MACEDONIAPaul had a meltdown situation in Corinth, which he had sent Titus to deal with by means of a letter. He came to Macedonia, expecting to find Titus there, but he was delayed. But instead of Titus, he found a bad situation there in Macedonia—everywhere he turned he ran into conflict (v. 5).Internally, Paul was beset with fears that all his work might come crashing down. This was a common concern of his—were all those floggings for nothing? Consider Gal. 4:11; 1 Thess. 3:5; and 2 Cor. 11:28–29. IN THE PERSON OF TITUSWhen Titus came, God was the one who comforted Paul (v. 6). Titus was the instrument, and God was the agent. This expression is likely an allusion to Isa. 49:13 in the LXX—where God brings eschatological comfort to His people. The coming of Titus was like that. Christ has a body, and He works good for His people through that body. You are the hands and feet of Christ Himself in the world.SEVENFOLD REPENTANCEThe repentance of the Corinthians before Titus had been a convulsive and dramatic one. They were not at all trying to preserve their dignity, putting things right without ever having to humble themselves. Remember that Paul mentions their obedience, their fear, and their trembling. This is a combination of a felt and very real authority with deep and open affection—the kind that Paul displayed with his enlarged heart.The sevenfold repentance could not be described as being in any way nonchalant. They were diligent, they worked to clear themselves, there was real indignation, they feared, they showed vehement desire, they displayed their zeal, and their hunger for vindication. And notice that Titus accepts all of this kind of behavior, as does Paul.ACTUAL GOOD GRIEFPaul sharply distinguishes godly sorrow from a worldly sorrow. There are two kinds of sorrow. The fact that you did something wrong, and are sorrow about it, does not by itself mean anything. Suppose you did something that was pretty tawdry, and you are humiliated about it. Every time you think about it, your forehead gets hot. You sinned on Monday, and you are sorry on Tuesday. Comes Friday, and you are still gnawing on your sorrow, like a dog with a bone. You are sorry yesterday, sorry today, and sorry tomorrow. At this rate, you are going to die sorry. That kind of sorrow is one of the things that needs to be repented of.The godly sorrow that Paul describes right alongside it is a godly sorrow that “works repentance to salvation.” That salvation, remember, is Christ. Godly sorrow drives you where? Godly sorrow leads straight to Christ. Godly sorrow leads you straight to the place of no regrets (v. 10). The way such a thing could ever be possible is that if all our regrets, and all the sins that produce such regrets, are bundled up together and laid on the shoulders of Christ at the moment when He bowed His head and died.

In American football teams there is one player who looks quite different from the others. Only when it comes time to make a field goal, does this player run onto the field. While the kicker or punter may wear the same uniform as a defensive lineman, he is generally smaller in height and weight. His job is not to defend the line, but to successfully kick a ball between the goal markers. Each player on the team has a unique ability and responsibility that is crucial to the team’s success. In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul explains how diversity within the body of Christ brings us together. Every believer deserves a seat at God’s table. Unfortunately, we are not immune to being tempted by pride and a sense of superiority over others. But Paul argues against this divisive attitude, insisting that everyone is important and needed (v. 21–23). Because God sees immeasurable value in everyone (v. 24), so should we. Even though people may be different than us, their worth goes much farther than their outward appearance or their history. Paul then gets immensely practical and clear that “there should be no division in the body,” and everyone should have “equal concern for each other” (v. 25). In other words, Christians ought to care for one another as part of the same body. Every part is connected, in both good times and bad (v. 26). Paul says in Romans 12:15, “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” By doing life together, in joy and in pain, we become united with one another. This is Paul’s desire for the Corinthian church, and it ought to be the desire for your church as well. >> Help unify your church by making sure everyone has an opportunity to be heard and a place to sit at the table. As you gather, seek out those who might not usually take an active role. Let them know they are valued!

#076 This is our fourth of eight episodes in our mini-series entitled, Paul's Treatises | Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians. On this episode we're going to overview the last ten chapters of the book of 1 Corinthians in which Paul answers questions of the Corinthians regarding difficulties they were having in their gatherings as a body.We need to remember this was all new stuff for believers gathering to worship the Lord. The church included Jews and Gentiles both coming from backgrounds ranging from temple to idol worship to agnosticism and atheism. Corinth was a cosmopolitan trade city filled with luxury and a culture seeped in the worldly trappings of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. To “Live as a Corinthian” meant to live in gross immorality reinforced and encouraged by prostitution practiced at pagan temples. Of course this was no different than cultures throughout the history of mankind where every man was allowed to do whatever was right in his own eyes.What Paul had been teaching in Corinth while he was with them and founding the church, and now reinforcing in this letter was counter cultural then and has remained so to this day. As we covered in our last episode on the opening six chapters, Paul was teaching believers how to live as people not of the world but in the world; surrounded by people living in a culture who were in the world and of the world. When Christ set us free from sin and condemnation, from the penalty of the law and death, and from Satan and his dominion what did he set us free to do? This is what Paul is addressing in this letter. Conflict in this freedom arises from two extreme sides. From the Gentile/pagan side comes the thought that given God's grace is unlimited we can now do what you want to satisfy the desires of our flesh without consequences from God as the grace of Jesus covers everything we do. Maybe not all-in to immersion, but at least up to our knees and waist in the squaller of pleasures. This thought has remained in the church to this day.From the Jewish side comes the thought of legalism and adherence to the law. When we were held in bondage to sin we were not capable of keeping the law. But now set free from sin we are obligated and capable of adherence to the law which will be the measure and standard for behavior within the church. This thought has also remained in the church to this day.Paul was letting the Corinthians know, and is letting us know today, that nothing has changed since the beginning. God who is holy, chose and redeemed us in Christ who were dead in our trespasses and sin, to be his sons and daughters and co-heirs with Christ in a coming kingdom. God is going to dwell with us into eternity on earth in a kingdom of God that will have no end. God through Jesus by the Holy Spirit has given us everything we need in this life to live a godly life. Yet when we first become believers, while we know something has happened and we've been changed, have lived no other life other than our formal life of sin and corruption. Paul is instructing the Corinthians and us today how to live our new life in Christ that is wholly antithetical to our former life when we were in and of the world.Even in 2022 we buck against Paul and God arguing we know a better way. Who was Paul anyway, telling the Corinthians and us what to do and how to live. Ancient culture and modern times are judex opposed. We've evolved morally and culturally to accept sex, drugs, and rock and roll and rebellion against the order God established for creation. We have the big bang theory, evolution, and humanism all of which the science and psychology academies accept and endorse. So we'll believe in Jesus, receive his grace, and do what we want no matter what Paul and God say.With all that as an introduction, let's get started.

When I was a child, birthdays and holidays were highlighted by presents and special traditions. But as an adult, I have noticed that our get togethers tend to center around food. Not just what we will eat, but who will be joining us for the meal. In the Gospels, the writers record at least 14 separate occasions when Jesus ate meals with others. Jesus often used those times as teaching moments to bring people closer to God. Whether He was the host or the guest, He understood that gathering around a table and sharing a meal together was a powerful experience. First Corinthians 11 highlights the significance of God’s people eating together. Paul identified how the Corinthian believers were neglecting one another regarding their practice of the Lord’s Supper. The early church would eat an entire meal together in addition to the bread and wine. Sadly, some members of the Corinthian church had poor table manners. Some were impatient, others would get drunk. Instead of reflecting on Jesus’ sacrifice and the community, they focused on their own selfish desires. Paul warns them that they were sinning against the body when they neglected one another (v. 27). As an alternative, they were to examine their own lives (v. 28) before coming to the table and prepare themselves appropriately. Paul was not wanting to keep people away from the Communion Table, but rather he is imploring his readers to honestly evaluate how their conduct honors the Lord. When we examine our lives, we will be reminded of our desperate need of God’s grace and forgiveness which can be found at the Table with other believers. Paul urges believers to eat together, regardless of their societal status in a way that glorifies God (v. 33). >> Soon, many of us will gather at the table to celebrate Thanksgiving. As you look forward to turkey and pumpkin pie (or whatever your family tradition), reflect on what makes these times so special. Who can you invite to your table?

What should you do when a disagreement escalates between believers? We realize that we are all sinners, and sin can draw a wedge between people. As Christians, we are not spared from these conflicts. But is legal action advisable between two Christians who clash? In 1 Corinthians 6, Paul addresses some believers in Corinth who were at odds with one another. The situation had become so hostile that they were going to court. Notice Paul’s dismay when he writes, “[D]o you dare to take it before the ungodly?” (v. 1). Paul was not concerned that the Corinthian judges were unjust, but that believers would sue one another before an unrighteous judge and spectators. In Corinth, the judge’s seat, known as the bema seat, was in the center of the town square. You can still see some court houses in town centers today. And much like today, lawsuits then were public knowledge. While cable news didn’t cover these trials 24/7, crowds gathered for entertainment, and reputations would be ruined. It is no wonder Paul was appalled by the idea of Christians suing one another. It goes completely against the gospel message of grace, charity, and forgiveness. Paul reminded the Corinthian believers that they were citizens of another world and kingdom (vv. 2–3). Paul was not against ever taking legal action. In Acts 22:25 and 25:10– 11, he appealed to the Roman courts for his own rights. Likewise, we are grateful for the legal experts who protect believers today. However, Paul thought it reprehensible for one believer to attack another in court. When possible, Christians should seek to settle disputes themselves according to the values, principles, and truths of Scripture. >> Don’t let things escalate between you and other believers to the point where legal action is needed. Instead, seek wise godly counsel and pray for God to give you the courage and grace to confront and resolve issues.

They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.” 2 Corinthian 5:21 (NIV)“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” Philippians 3:9 (NIV)“[I am] found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.”

The Corinthian church was well versed in knowledge; yet that knowledge was being used in a prideful way, and ultimately harming the conscience of new converts and babes in the faith. Paul steps in to explain that knowledge blows up, but love is what builds up, and the Christian must always speak and live the truth in love.

Gospel Grace Church Sermon Audio

1 Corinthians 14:26-40 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - In the Corinthian context, worship gatherings had devolved into unbridled clatter and chaos. People were vying for attention and believed that their personal expressions were more important than the community's experience. So, in 1 Corinthians 14, Paul corrected the church and guided their worship with three core ideas – edification, intelligibility, and order. As we examine the second half of the chapter, there are echoes of the need to build up the body (edification), and there are allusions to the importance of tongues being interpreted (intelligibility), but the primary focus is orderliness. Since “God is not a God of confusion but of peace” (v. 33), his people should follow his lead in the public gathering of the church. Worship services should be “done decently and in order” (v. 40). As we examine this text, may the Lord help us to pursue order and peace in a way that pleases him.

Sparta had defeated Athens at the battle of Tanagra in 457 BC, though both armies had taken heavy losses. Both would look to make a temporary truce so that they could regroup without the fear of being attacked while in a vulnerable position. This would see the forces of both Athens and Sparta return to their cities bringing a close to this campaign. However, this would not be the end of hostilities and campaigning for the first Peloponnesian war.Just 62 days after Tanagra, Athens would launch a fresh attack into Boeotian lands where Sparta had been active, with a possible agreement with Thebes. Sparta would remain within their home territory which would see Athens facing Theban and other Boeotian troops during this new campaign. Athens would win a major victory while also taking many cities, which would see them gain much control and influence within Boeotia.This would not be the only campaign launched. A naval campaign would also be arranged which would seem to further Athenian trade connections. There was also an element of gaining some revenge for Tanagra, where Athens would ravage a Spartan port. However, it would appear the main objective would be to establish and secure Athenian trade connections to the west through the Corinthian gulf, dominated by many Peloponnesian league members.These campaigns that would unfold and continue through the next couple of years would see Athen's influence within the Greek mainland increases to new heights. Though, news of the disastrous Egyptian campaign would arrive, seeing Athens having to direct its attention to defending its interests within the Delian league as well as counter the threat of possible hostile Persian moves within the Aegean.Support the show

After 6 chapters of building a theological foundation, now Paul begins to address specific questions and concerns in the Corinthian church. In the first part of chapter 7 he gives practical instruction related to sex, marriage, and divorce. All of these things are grounded in the theological foundation. As we approach this chapter, we are not looking for quick answers or rules. We are looking for how these instructions reflect the beauty and wisdom of God and lead us to deeper faith in Jesus.

Evidentially, some in the Corinthian congregation did not believe in resurrection. The Greeks famously didn't believe in the resurrection of the body. Pagans believed the spirit was holy, but the flesh something to be escaped and discarded. Building upon the resurrection of Jesus, St. Paul assures them that since Jesus was raised there would be a resurrection for people, too. Plus, Jesus' rising is good news! Resurrection means the end of the curse and victory over death. In this episode, Pastors Booe and Lukomski talk more about resurrection, plus address one strange comment St. Paul makes about baptism.

With the insult received at the hands of the Spartans during the helot revolt, the Athenians began setting a course to deal with the new geopolitical realities. They would first sever their connection to Sparta by dissolving their membership in the Hellenic league. This would then be followed by securing alliances with enemies of Sparta and cities that would secure Athen's position from any attack coming from the Peloponnese.Athens would also enact building projects that would assist in protecting Attica and Athens itself. This would be seen in the construction of a defensive wall extending from the city of Magara on the Corinthian isthmus. Further defensive walls would also be built in Attica, turning Athens into an island on the mainland. These would be known as Athens long walls and would connect the city to its ports.Enviably, with these shits in alliances and activities, regional conflicts would begin developing. Athens would be engaged with one of Sparta's biggest allies, Corinth, where battles would break out on the Peloponnese, off the coast and on the isthmus itself. This period would see Athens stretched thin, as she would not only be engaged in Greece, but overseas campaigns would also continue during this period.Finally, After Athens manoeuvrings on the mainland, Sparta would not stand by idle and would react. This would see a Spartan led campaign develop north of Attica in Boeotia, its motivations and objectives would be somewhat unclear in the sources. Though, this Spartan action would see Athens respond and march out to meet the Spartan force. This would see these past Hellenic league members face one another at the battle of Tanagra.Support the show

Rev. Jason Schockman, pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Oconomowoc, WI, joins the Rev. Dr. Phil Booe to study 1 Corinthians 11:17-34. “Don't you have houses to eat and drink in?!” (v. 22). St. Paul is predictably frustrated with the Corinthian congregation's unchristian behavior, but dishonoring the Lord's Supper is especially egregious. The Apostle admonishes them for their frivolous behavior during the sacrament: “One goes hungry, another gets drunk!” (v. 21) He especially condemns the divisions that fracture their Christian unity. Nevertheless, because of what was going on in Corinth, we now have the clearest teaching on the Lord's Supper in the Bible, second only to Jesus' institution. In this episode, Pastors Booe and Schockman feast upon this important text and reflect on how this impacts our communion practice today.
