People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:20


1Co 11:20 When therefore ye come together in one place. When they assembled these heresies and divisions were manifest. There was a Paulite group, an Apolloite group, and a Petrine group, who sat apart from each other. See PNT "1Co 1:12". [This] is not to eat the Lord's supper. Coming in such a spirit they were in no fit mind to eat the Lord's supper.

    Verse 16 answers your question. Although it was fine for the converted Jews to observe such old customs if they were doing unto God, it was not apart of the new covenant. BUT IF ANY MAN SEEM CONTENIOUS, WE HAVE NO SUCH CUSTOM, NEITHER THE CHURCHES OF GOD.
