Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:10


1:10 Now I exhort you - Ye have faith and hope; secure love also. By the endearing name of our Lord Jesus Christ - lnfinitely preferable to all the human names in which ye glory. That ye all speak the same thing - They now spoke different things, #1Co 1:12| And that there be no schisms among you - No alienation of affection from each other. Is this word ever taken in any other sense in scripture? But that ye be joined in the same mind - Affections, desires. And judgment - Touching all the grand truths of the gospel.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:10


1Co 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren. How earnest and imploring is the Apostle's exhortation that they should maintain unity! That ye all speak the same thing. Have no distinctive party declarations. This is violated in the modern sectarian symbols and confessions. [That] there be no divisions among you. "No schisms", in the Greek. If there were none, and all "were perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment", all would "speak the same thing". There would be no variance in their declarations. It is evident, from what follows, that, while the Corinthians had not separated into various church organizations, they had formed several parties within the church (1Co 1:12). Organized sects, claiming to be "branches of the church", were unknown till centuries later.

  • Gregory J. Phillips
    (1 Corinthians 1) This is the fruit of the well informed early Church . The Church at Corinth had the Jews who were superstitious, and the Gentiles with their sinfulness. This is what the Apostle Paul had to deal with. As if this wasn't enough, those false teachers stole the peace by undermining Paul's Apostolic influence. This breech is still effectively operating in The Church today. Amen gjp
  • Sharon Burnham
    Our father have blessed us with his holy spirit. We should learn to give back to him and also thank him for what he have done for us. We all have sinned and that is why he loved us so early because he died for us all.
