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.

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.

    Reading vs 21, I began to think what was that wisdom of God by which d world was supposed to know God as God? Then it dawned on me that d Bible was referring to d wisdom of creation. Romans Chp 1 says "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.20 For the invisible things of him from d creation of the world are clearly seen". Evolution is satanic.
