John the Baptist, And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians Paul concludes his discourse on love in this verse by beginning with “And now ” Among scholars, there is division over what this means.

But even more remarkable than the sublime poetry of this chapter is the concluding verse: “Now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” In this verse St. Paul has found an absolutely complete and satisfactory formula for the Christian character.

These discourses are not academic exercises or armchair ruminations on obscure topics. Each discourse speaks to Christians in this world. To those who think they can win a debate by being loud and crass I say, “be quiet.” To those who think they can win with a perceived superior intellect I say, “be humble.” Discourse requires civility in order to produce reasoned outcomes.
