Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:14

People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:14


1Co 1:14 I thank God that I baptized none of you., "The Corinthians hearing, believed and were baptized" (Ac 18:8); but the fellow-ministers of Paul usually administered the baptismal rite. Since some of the Corinthians were claiming to be of his party, he was glad that he had not personally baptized them, lest some of them should say he had baptized in his own name (1Co 1:15). But Crispus. Formerly chief ruler of the synagogue at Corinth (Ac 18:8). And Gaius. He was Paul's host at Corinth when the Epistle to the Romans was written. See Ro 16:23.
