    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:1

    ¶ Pablo, llamado a ser apstol de Jess, el Cristo por la voluntad de Dios, y el hermano Sstenes,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 1:1

    Verse 1.
    Paul, called to be an apostle] Bishop Pearce contends that a comma should be placed after klhtov, called, which should not be joined to apostolov, apostle: the first signifies being called to, the other sent from. He reads it, therefore, Paul the called; the apostle of Jesus Christ.

    The word klhtov, called, may be here used, as in some other places, for constituted. For this, and the meaning of the word apostle, see the note on Rom. i. 1.

    As the apostle had many irregularities to reprehend in the Corinthian Church, it was necessary that he should be explicit in stating his authority.

    He was called-invited to the Gospel feast; had partaken of it, and, by the grace he received, was qualified to proclaim salvation to others: Jesus Christ therefore made him an apostle, that is, gave him a Divine commission to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles.

    Through the will of God] By a particular appointment from God alone; for, being an extraordinary messenger, he derived no part of his authority from man.

    Sosthenes our brother] Probably the same person mentioned Acts xviii. 17, where see the note.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - All Christians are by baptism dedicated and devoted to Christ, and ar under strict obligations to be holy. But in the true church of God ar all who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, and wh call upon him as God manifest in the flesh, for all the blessings of salvation; who acknowledge and obey him as their Lord, and as Lord of all; it includes no other persons. Christians are distinguished from the profane and atheists, that they dare not live without prayer; an they are distinguished from Jews and pagans, that they call on the nam of Christ. Observe how often in these verses the apostle repeats the words, Our Lord Jesus Christ. He feared not to make too frequent or to honourable mention of him. To all who called upon Christ, the apostl gave his usual salutation, desiring, in their behalf, the pardonin mercy, sanctifying grace, and comforting peace of God, through Jesu Christ. Sinners can have no peace with God, nor any from him, but through Christ. He gives thanks for their conversion to the faith of Christ; that grace was given them by Jesus Christ. They had bee enriched by him with all spiritual gifts. He speaks of utterance an knowledge. And where God has given these two gifts, he has given grea power for usefulness. These were gifts of the Holy Ghost, by which God bore witness to the apostles. Those that wait for the coming of ou Lord Jesus Christ, will be kept by him to the end; and those that ar so, will be blameless in the day of Christ, made so by rich and fre grace. How glorious are the hopes of such a privilege; to be kept by the power of Christ, from the power of our corruptions and Satan' temptations!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Called to be an
    apostle. See on Rom. i. 1. Compare 1 Tim. i. 1. Not distinguishing him from other apostles. Compare Matt. iv. 21; John vi. 70; but Paul was called no less directly than these by Jesus Christ. Gal. i. 12-16. John does not use the word apostle, but gives the idea, John xiii. 18.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:1 {Called to be an
    apostle} (kletos apostolos). Verbal adjective kletos from kalew, without einai, to be. Literally, {a called apostle} (#Ro 1:1), not so-called, but one whose apostleship is due not to himself or to men (#Ga 1:1), but to God, {through the will of God} (dia qelematos tou qeou). The intermediate (dia, duo, two) agent between Paul's not being Christ's apostle and becoming one was God's will (qelema, something willed of God), God's command (#1Ti 1:1). Paul knows that he is not one of the twelve apostles, but he is on a par with them because, like them, he is chosen by God. He is an apostle of Jesus Christ or Christ Jesus (MSS. vary here, later epistles usually Christ Jesus). The refusal of the Judaizers to recognize Paul as equal to the twelve made him the more careful to claim his position. Bengel sees here Paul's denial of mere human authority in his position and also of personal merit: _Namque mentione Dei excluditur auctoramentum humanum, mentione Voluntatis Dei, meritum Pauli_. {Our brother} (ho adelfos). Literally, the brother, but regular Greek idiom for our brother. this Sosthenes, now with Paul in Ephesus, is probably the same Sosthenes who received the beating meant for Paul in Corinth (#Ac 18:17). If so, the beating did him good for he is now a follower of Christ. He is in no sense a co-author of the epistle, but merely associated with Paul because they knew him in Corinth. He may have been compelled by the Jews to leave Corinth when he, a ruler of the synagogue, became a Christian. See #1Th 1:1 for the mention of Silas and Timothy in the salutation. Sosthenes could have been Paul's amanuensis for this letter, but there is no proof of it.
