This is a commentary on 1 Corinthians 14-16 the text for Lesson 36 in the Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families manual in 2023. This is the last of the three lessons on 1 Corinthians. Paul began in chapter 14 by speaking about the proper use of spiritual gifts and of reverence and proper decorum in sacrament meetings. He said a fair bit about speaking in tongues—we will distinguish glossolalia from xenolalia. The former is a counterfeit of the latter true gift of the Spirit. We will talk about the role of that gift in the Church today.

We shall also think a bit about Paul’s attitude and advice on women speaking in Church meetings. In chapter 15 Paul gave his testimony of the resurrection of the dead, and we will explore that doctrine and answer the potentially burning question: “Will I be raptured with my evangelical friends, thus saved from the fiery judgment?” In chapter 16 Paul set out his future travel plans and said au revoir.

Then follows an appendix on baptism for the dead, which Paul mentioned in passing as part of his testimony on the resurrection. This appendix is almost half of this lesson’s pages, so it can be safely skipped if you know all you need to know about the temple ordinances. pp.26
