Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:2


6:2 Know ye not - This expression occurs six times in this single chapter, and that with a peculiar force; for the Corinthians knew and gloried in it, but they did not practise. That the saints - After having been judged themselves. Shall judge the world - Shall be assessors with Christ in the judgment wherein he shall condemn all the wicked, as well angels as men, #Matt 19:28 |#Rev 20:4|.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:2


1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? Shall sit with Christ, after they have been judged, while the world is judged (Mt 25:41; 19:29). If so high a trust is to be given, it is a little thing that saints should judge differences between church members. These ought all to be submitted to arbitrators, or to the officers.
