A chiasm is a literary structure where themes of the first section of a passage are repeated in the second. The center of the chiasm is often the climax of the passage. In 1 Corinthians 11:33-34 the center is rules for eating together (1 Cor 11:33b-34a).ASo then, my brethren, when you come together (11:33a)Bto eat, wait for one another. (11:33b)B’If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, (11:34a)A’so that you will not come together for judgment. (11:34b)
