Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:11


1:11 It hath been declared to me by them of the family of Chloe - Whom some suppose to have been the wife of Stephanas, and the mother of Fortunatus and Achaicus. By these three the Corinthians had sent their letter to St. Paul, #1Cor 16:17|. That there are contentions - A word equivalent with schisms in the preceding verse.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:11


1Co 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me. He candidly tells them how he had learned of their dissensions. Them [who are of the house] of Chloe. Whether these were her children or her servants, or whether she lived at Corinth and these members of her household had come to visit Paul at Ephesus, or whether she lived at Ephesus and these persons had made a visit to Corinth, these are all unknown. Chloe is not elsewhere name.

    Division of the church is not of God its the trick of the enemy to keep confusion amongst Gods people.

    1 Corinthians Chapter 1. I have been reading the Bible everyday without a miss for 1 straight year. And So far what I have come up with this. It doesn't matter what other people think about you! It's what God thinks about you! If we live by Gods laws then we are On God's good side. Gods has rules and laws they are all in His book!

    Truly the cross of Jesus Christ is foolishness to the one that is not of the household of Faith . They think it is totally absurb to believe in such a thing as a man to die for the sins of the world. Only because they have not believed in the message of the cross that was presented to them. The cross to me is my life giving force : without the cross of Jesus Christ I would be undone and on my way to Hell . Truly the cross is the power of God unto salvation to me !!!! Praise God for His Amazing Grace !!!

    What do I think of Corinthians 1, where you have Jews and Gentiles. There is your separation instead of being on one accord. God explains no one is better than the other. Those who seek wisdom and understanding let him hear.
