Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 3:4


3:4 I am of Apollos - St. Paul named himself and Apollos, to show that he would condemn any division among them, even though it were in favour of himself, or the dearest friend he had in the world. Are ye not carnal - For the Spirit of God allows no party zeal.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 3:4


1Co 3:4 While one saith, I am of Paul, etc. The fact that they are divided by following different human leaders, instead of all following Christ, demonstrated that they were yet carnal.
