Love is the rubric: a cultic commentary on 1 Corinthians
Daniel Patrick McGeachy
The findings are: 1) 1 Corinthians is a unity, built around the central theme of the church's need to express its joy in the gospel as it upbuilds itself in love; 2) The great hymns to love (13) and resurrection (15) are not extraneous additions, but central expressions of that underlying message; 3) If we are to rediscover this, it is clear that we must build on that same foundation, to wait for and encourage each other, to make room for great difference of taste and doctrine, and to discover our unity in the resurrection. Decency and order may be the necessary machinery for carrying out the task, but our business is joy, and the rubric is love.
