Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:15


2:15 But the spiritual man - He that hath the Spirit. Discerneth all the things of God whereof we have been speaking. Yet he himself is discerned by no man - No natural men. They neither understand what he is, nor what he says.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:15


1Co 2:15 He that is spiritual. He who lives the spiritual life. Judgeth all things. "Examineth", in the margin of the Revised Version. The spiritual man, helped by the indwelling Spirit, is prepared to study the deeper truths of the Spirit. Yet he himself is judged of no man. None who are not spiritual are able to sit in judgment upon his higher life. He is on a higher level, and the animal man, from his lower level, cannot well estimate him.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 2

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Paul reminds us in this chapter that we must be filled with the Holy Spirit to be able to discern things of this world. God's promises for us if we keep His commandments are also contained in "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." Let us love the Lord with all our heart and it shall be well with us.

    BSP; What you say is most certainly the truth, but we shouldn't think that God winks at the ungodly because they are not Christians nor spiritually minded. God knows how much we all know or don't, and how much we do or not do with the knowledge and conviction He gives. Remember how Jesus rebuked the hypocrites and pronounced, Woe unto you! Having a spiritual mind has to do with being of the truth!
  • BSP
    Verse 14, 15: To a physical or fleshly minded man they will not accept spiritual things or understand them. The fleshly minded man or woman must make their mind over in order to understand spiritual things.
  • BSP
    Verse 12: The spirit of the world and spirit of God are in complete contrast to one another. By one's actions and words it can easily be seen which spirit one has.
