    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:16

    Y tambin bautic la casa de Estfanas; mas no s si he bautizado algn otro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 1:16

    Verse 16. The
    household of Stephanas] From chap. xvi. 15, we learn that the family of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, probably converted and baptized by the apostle himself. Epenetus is supposed to be one of this family. See the note on Rom. xvi. 5.

    I know not whether I baptized any other.] I do not recollect that there is any person now residing in Corinth, or Achaia, besides the above mentioned, whom I have baptized. It is strange that the doubt here expressed by the apostle should be construed so as to affect his inspiration! What, does the inspiration of prophet or apostle necessarily imply that he must understand the geography of the universe, and have an intuitive knowledge of all the inhabitants of the earth, and how often, and where they may have changed their residence! Nor was that inspiration ever given so to work on a man's memory that he could not forget any of the acts which he had performed during life. Inspiration was given to the holy men of old that they might be able to write and proclaim the mind of God in the times which concern the salvation of men.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. And I also baptized the household of Stephanas , etc.] The same name with Stephanios, or Stephanio in Pliny f5 . Before he says he had baptized none but Crispus and Gaius; but recollecting things, he corrects himself, and observes, that he had also baptized the household of Stephanas, who by the Greek writers is thought to be the same with the jailer baptized by the apostle at Philippi, but was now removed from thence to Corinth, and was become a famous and useful man there. No argument can be formed from the baptism of his household in favour of infant baptism, since it must be first proved that he had any infants in his family, and that these were baptized; and if his household and the jailers are the same, it is certain that his household were such who were capable of having the word of God spoke to them, and who actually did believe in God. And if they were not the same, yet it is clear that this household of Stephanas consisted of adult, converted, and very useful persons; they were the firstfruits of Achaia, and had addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints, ( 1 Corinthians 16:15). Besides , that is, the above mentioned persons, I know not whether I baptized any other ; meaning at Corinth, for he might have baptized, and doubtless did baptize many more in other places, for anything that is here said to the contrary: of this he would not be positive; for though he might fully know, and well remember, on recollection, who, and how many, were baptized by him with his own hands there, yet he could not tell but that some persons might have removed thither, and become members of the church in that place, who had been baptized by him elsewhere.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-16 - In the great things of
    religion be of one mind; and where there is no unity of sentiment, still let there be union of affection. Agreement in the greater things should extinguish divisions about the lesser. Ther will be perfect union in heaven, and the nearer we approach it of earth, the nearer we come to perfection. Paul and Apollos both wer faithful ministers of Jesus Christ, and helpers of their faith and joy but those disposed to be contentious, broke into parties. So liable ar the best things to be corrupted, and the gospel and its institution made engines of discord and contention. Satan has always endeavoured to stir up strife among Christians, as one of his chief devices agains the gospel. The apostle left it to other ministers to baptize, while he preached the gospel, as a more useful work.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    16. And I
    baptized also. Another exceptional case occurs to him which he conscientiously adds. The de and has a slightly corrective force.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:16 {Also the
    household of Stephanas} (kai ton stefana oikon). Mentioned as an afterthought. Robertson and Plummer suggest that Paul's amanuensis reminded him of this case. Paul calls him a first-fruit of Achaia (#1Co 16:15) and so earlier than Crispus and he was one of the three who came to Paul from Corinth (#16:17), clearly a family that justified Paul's personal attention about baptism. {Besides} (loipon). Accusative of general reference, "as for anything else." Added to make clear that he is not meaning to omit any one who deserves mention. See also #1Th 4:1; 1Co 4:2; 2Co 13:11; 2Ti 4:8. Ellicott insists on a sharp distinction from to loipon "as for the rest" (#2Th 3:1; Php 3:1; 4:8; Eph 6:10). Paul casts no reflection on baptism, for he could not with his conception of it as the picture of the new life in Christ (#Ro 6:2-6), but he clearly denies here that he considers baptism essential to the remission of sin or the means of obtaining forgiveness.
