Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 5:7


5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven - Both of sinners and of sin. That ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened - That is, that being unleavened ye may be a new lump, holy unto the Lord. For our passover is slain for us - The Jewish passover, about the time of which this epistle was wrote, #1Cor 5:11|, was only a type of this. What exquisite skill both here and everywhere conducts the zeal of the inspired writer! How surprising a transition is here, and yet how perfectly natural! The apostle, speaking of the incestuous criminal, slides into his darling topic, - crucified Saviour. Who would have expected it on such an occasion. Yet, when it is thus brought in, who does not see and admire both the propriety of the subject, and the delicacy of its introduction?


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 5:7


1Co 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven. Let the leaven of impurity be removed, by putting out the fornicator, that the church may be pure from the impure leaven, or influence. So, too, each one must cleanse his own heart. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us. At the passover, Jews were required to put all leaven from their houses (Ex 12:15). As we have a Paschal Lamb, slain for us, the church should cleanse out the leaven of sin.

    2 Corinthians 6 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you. A born again child of God will not hang with unbeliever and sin. We can judge the believers with Love and prayer, but we can not judge the lost, that will be God's doing.
  • Tammy427
    We are instructed to judge but using God's Word as our standard, not our own convictions, sins, etc. BUT...we are warned that if we are to judge that we must be prepared to be judged in the same fashion. Not only do we need to examine our motives during said judging but we also need to make sure that we are doing so in the spirit of reconciliation. We need to pray, edify and lift up the stumbling.

    I feel like in our day now we are repeating Sodom and Gomorrah! I sincerely pray for our country our world for repentance and not forget who God is and His wrath

    1 Corinthians 5:1 the man was having sex with his Fathers wife. The answer is to deliver that man unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved. This shows that the man is saved, or can be saved. This verse corresponds with Leviticus 20:11. Leviticus 20:13 is about sodomites, I believe that they can be saved, because the person in Leviticus 20:11 can be.
