Table for 1 Corinthians 13:8-12

Verse(s)

Current time

Future time

8-10

Know in part and prophesy in part

The perfect comes (and does away with the partial)

11

How a child speaks, thinks and reasons

How a man puts childish things away

12a

Seeing something in a mirror, dimly

Seeing something face to face (clearly)

12b

Knowing in part

Knowing fully

 

The basic contrast is from lacking something to lacking nothing.

In each case Paul is contrasting the partial (spiritual gifts of knowledge and prophecy) with the perfect (the complete revelation to the church).
