The Scriptures —Study 8 — 1 Corinthians 11:2-34
Study 8 From The Book of 1 Corinthians Is: 1
This chapter deals with tow irregularities in
public worship. The first concerns the
proper way for women to dress when they take part in public worship. The second concerns unchristian behaviour at
the social meal, which was the occasion of the observance of the Lord Supper.

without one in Corinth at that time.
