Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 6:3

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:3


6:1 The unjust - The heathens. A Christian could expect no justice from these. The saints - Who might easily decide these smaller differences in a private and friendly manner.

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|.

6:4 Them who are of no esteem in the church - That is, heathens, who, as such, could be in no esteem with the Christians.

6:5 Is there not one among you, who are such admirers of wisdom, that is wise enough to decide such causes?

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 6:3

  • Cliff tomlinson on 1 Corinthians 6:3
    GOD 'S WORD IS TRUE
  • 1st Cor.6:3 "more things that pretain to this life"
    When we except Jesus and walk the course He has laid out for us, then we are angels of God. We are not the same as the Angels that are in heaven now, but we are servants of God. We have now the right to tell someone that what they are doing is wrong and against our Lord Jesus's teaching. We can judge the sin but not the person. Just remember "When we have love we have peace" and that comes by accepting our Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour
