Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 11:6


11:6 If I am unskilful in speech - If I speak in a plain, unadorned way, like an unlearned person. So the Greek word properly signifies.

2Co 11:6 Though [I am] rude in speech, yet not in knowledge. He had not the rhetoric of a Corinthian orator, but he was not wanting in divine knowledge. See 1Co 1:17 2:4. His revealed knowledge had been manifest among them.

    Acts 9:15 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: Paul didn't have to brag about what he did for the Lord Jesus, Jesus said that Paul was a chosen vessel into him. That alone is special from Jesus himself. Jesus, thank you for using Apostle Paul for the Gentiles. Love
  • Eevangelist Andrew Kelly
    Paul laboured more then all the disciples and apostles, yes and he had lots to brag about as he know what he was doing: Unlike preachers behind the pulpit clueless.

    1st Timothy 1:16] Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

    Romans 14:11 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. With the mouth, we will confess the GOSPEL that God wrote in his own Words. God use Holy men of God to write the Bible. It all ends at the cross of Jesus Christ. I Thank Jesus for saving my Soul. Glory always be to Jesus.

    Wow Apostle Paul labored more then anybody in the Lord. 2 Corinthians 11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? I speak as a fool I am more in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. Jesus suffer the cross, Paul suffer beheaded. Wow, that is unbelievable how they suffered. There is a friend that sticked closer then a brother, that's Jesus.

    Kurt: Yes:No one is Saved until one is Called(a Tugging on Your Heart):John 6:44 / Ask Forgiveness:1John1:9 /They are Washed in His Blood:Revelation1:5 / They Will be Baptized with His Spirit and giving a New Heart, You will be Changed! Mark l:8, 2Corinthians 5:17, You will Know! Impossible not to Know. Tribulation and Persecution comes to All who are Saved. Acts 14:22 / No roots:Matthew 13:21
