Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 10:7


10:7 Do ye look at the outward appearance of things - Does any of you judge of a minister of Christ by his person, or any outward circumstance? Let him again think this of himself - Let him learn it from his own reflection, before I convince him by a severer method.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 10:7


2Co 10:7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? The Revised Version omits the question. Perhaps his opposers claimed some external advantages, that they were from Judea, had been disciples of Christ on earth, etc. If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's. If such an one claimed to be Christ's on this, or any ground, Paul had equal claims.
