Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:12


11:12 And as the woman was at first taken out of the man, so also the man is now, in the ordinary course of nature, by the woman; but all things are of God - The man, the woman, and their dependence on each other.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:12


1Co 11:12 For as the woman [is] from the man, etc. As she was created for man so man is born of woman. But all things of God. There is an equipoise. These relations are all "of God".

    Yes I would have the same understanding as Ray Smith in that eat drink and be merry at home if you so wish. Not in the house of our Lord. In his house its done as a rememberance to God and Jesus Christ in whom we respect.

    The Lord Said, As Often as You Eat this Bread--- (Verse 26)As Often, is More then Once a Year. Some Every Month, or Every Week or 6 Times a Year. They are Showing The Lord's Death Till He Returns. You are to Search Your Heart to See if You have Sinned(Verse 27-29)They Go to Church to Worship and Sing Praises to God. And More Fellowship After Services. Christ and The Disciples Eat Together Often
  • Albett
    No, you're not correct. This is speaking on two things. People shouldn't go to church to have a feast, as many of these churches do. They bring food, just to hang out together to eat, in CHURCH. God does not like that. Also, churches who think they do good in God's eyes, when they have bread and wine, every Sunday. That's dead wrong. The bread and wine is only to be taken at Passover, annually.
  • Bruce
    Yes, It's Very Right. Some that have Money Made it a Picnic. The Others had No Money or Food. If I'm One of The Poor I Would be in Sin for Sure. I would Want Some of that Food. I would be Mad because They have and I Don't. If I had a Chance I would Steal something and then I would Lie. Church Dinners are OK. Everyone Can Eat
