Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:22


11:22 Have ye not houses to eat and drink your common meals in? or do ye despise the church of God - Of which the poor are both the larger and the better part. Do ye act thus in designed contempt of them?


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:22


1Co 11:22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? The practice is rebuked. The place to eat their feasts was at home. Or despise ye the church of God? By a selfish feast, where some ate luxuriously, and put to shame others, perhaps the poor, who had nothing.

    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.
  • James Fox
    The covenant between God, and Christ was completed when Christ on the cross said, "it is finished".
