I Corinthians 12:12-26

The New Testament describes the church using many different metaphors. Even within the Book of 1 Corinthians, the church is variously described as a “field”, a “building”, a “temple”, and a “family”. Among the most helpful pictures of the church is the one we meet in this passage which describes the church using the metaphor of a human body made up of many distinct members and yet still functioning as one unit.
