Bible study with Metropolitan Jonah – 1 Corinthians 8

In the latest meeting of his Bible study group at St John the Baptist ROCOR Cathedral on January 25, Metropolitan Jonah presided over a fascinating discussion of 1 Corinthians 8. This talk ranged from the history of first century Christian participation in both Jewish and pagan sacrificial rites (and how to apply St Paul’s biblical lesson when eating in non-Christian settings today), to the question of how to seek after knowledge while retaining a spirit of humility.

Metropolitan Jonah also touched on how to demonstrate our love for God through our love for those in our communities, and posited that coming to understand the world, and to know God, through the noetic dimension, the eye of spiritual consciousness, is akin to suddenly opening up to a three dimensional reality after previously comprehending only two dimensions.
