    :12,19,27,28 Eph 4:25

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:14

    Porque el cuerpo no es un miembro, sino muchos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 12:14

    Verse 14. For the
    body is not one member] The mystical body, the Church, as well as the natural body, is composed of many members.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. For the
    body is not one member , etc.] Not only one; nor is anyone member the body, though ever so eminent, as the head or eye: thus the church of Christ is not one person only, or does not consist of one sort of persons; as only of Jews, or only of Gentiles, or only of rich and freemen, or only of men of extraordinary gifts and abilities, or greatly eminent for grace and spiritual knowledge: but many ; members, as the Arabic version adds; as eyes, ears, hands, feet, etc. so in the mystical body of Christ, the church, there are many members, some in a higher station, others in a lower; some of greater gifts, grace, and usefulness, others of lesser; some Jews, other Gentiles; some bond, others free; yet all one in Christ the head, and all related to each other.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-26 -
    Christ and his church form one body, as Head and members. Christian become members of this body by baptism. The outward rite is of Divin institution; it is a sign of the new birth, and is called therefore the washing of regeneration, Tit 3:5. But it is by the Spirit, only by the renewing of the Holy Ghost, that we are made members of Christ's body And by communion with Christ at the Lord's supper, we are strengthened not by drinking the wine, but by drinking into one Spirit. Each membe has its form, place, and use. The meanest makes a part of the body There must be a distinction of members in the body. So Christ's member have different powers and different places. We should do the duties of our own place, and not murmur, or quarrel with others. All the member of the body are useful and necessary to each other. Nor is there member of the body of Christ, but may and ought to be useful to fellow-members. As in the natural body of man, the members should be closely united by the strongest bonds of love; the good of the whol should be the object of all. All Christians are dependent one upo another; each is to expect and receive help from the rest. Let us the have more of the spirit of union in our religion.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. The
    body. The student will naturally recall the fable of the body and the members uttered by Menenius Agrippa, and related by Livy, ii., 32; but the illustration seems to have been a favorite one, and occurs in Seneca, Marcus Antoninus, and others.122

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:14 {Is not one member} (ouk estin hen melos). The
    point sounds like a truism, but it is the key to the whole problem of church life both local and general. Vincent refers to the fable of the body and the members by Menenius Agrippa (Livy, II, 32), but it was an old parable. Socrates pointed out how absurd it would be if feet and hands should work against one another when God made them to cooperate (Xen., _Mem_. II. iii. 18). Seneca alludes to it as does Marcus Aurelius and Marcus Antoninus.
