Paul’s Concept of Charisma in 1 Corinthians 12

With Emphasis on Nigerian Charismatic Movement


Luke Ndubuisi

Since the Charismatics have contributed to our idea of Charisma, it becomes necessary to study and interpret 1 Corinthians 12, where Paul instructs about Charisma. The author’s main purpose is to assess the Nigerian Charismatic Movement in the light of 1 Corinthians 12 and thus, to submit their experiences to the test of biblical text. Consequently, the basic task will be the interpretation and analysis of the term Charisma and the study of its usage in secular and religious literature. Hence, the methods employed are textual criticism and sentence structure analysis. In addition, various hermeneutical procedures and divergent presuppositions will lead to different remarks and conclusions.
