CULTURES IN CONFLICT, by Ray Vander Laan.
Session 4 — The Lord’s Supper: Discerning the Body.
The Jews of Jesus’ day lived together as extended families, sharing the family resources. The father was to care for all who lived in “the father’s house,”– rescuing them from trouble or paying their debts. He also welcomed strangers and cared for outsiders who found themselves in need. As a Jew, Paul was certainly familiar with this “father’s house” idea. But the message that we are all one in Christ clashed with the Greco-Roman class system. In Corinth, Paul teaches believers there what it means to be a part of “the Father’s house.” 35-minute video followed by discussion, led by Kay Haun.
