Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:2


6:2 Know ye not - This expression occurs six times in this single chapter, and that with a peculiar force; for the Corinthians knew and gloried in it, but they did not practise. That the saints - After having been judged themselves. Shall judge the world - Shall be assessors with Christ in the judgment wherein he shall condemn all the wicked, as well angels as men, #Matt 19:28 |#Rev 20:4|.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:2


1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? Shall sit with Christ, after they have been judged, while the world is judged (Mt 25:41; 19:29). If so high a trust is to be given, it is a little thing that saints should judge differences between church members. These ought all to be submitted to arbitrators, or to the officers.

    We should be constantly reminded that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
