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.

    Eternal truths- For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. That no flesh should glory in his presence. We must learn to give ALL the glory to God. He is ever worthy of our praise. No man on earth must give glory to himself.

    There are to be no divisions in the body Christ. In the house of Chloe there contentions. One is of Paul, one of Cephas, one Apollos, one of Christ. My brethren this should not be. Seems the divisions became worse as time marched on. Remains to be seen how this division will end.

    James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not and it shall be given him. Paul wrote 13 books of the Bible and is the 13 Apostles.

  • Ray321
    35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Jesus Christ is the Word, therefore we must believe his Word. 6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.the Word is Salvation. 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. The Word is Alive.
