Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:22


1:22 For whereas the Jews demand of the apostles, as they did of their Lord, more signs still, after all they have seen already; and the Greeks, or gentiles, seek wisdom - The depths of philosophy, and the charms of eloquence.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:22


1Co 1:22 For the Jews require a sign. Not merely miracles, such as the apostles worked (Ac 4:22 6:8 8:6 15:12 19:11), but a sign from heaven (Mt 16:1 Mr 8:11 Lu 11:16). They said, "Let Christ come down from heaven, if he be risen". And the Greeks seek after wisdom. While the Jews asked for a sign from heaven, the Greeks demanded a well-argued system of philosophy (Ac 17:18).
