    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:27

    ¶ Y vosotros sois el cuerpo de Cristo, y miembros cada uno en particular.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 12:27

    Verse 27. Now ye are the
    body of Christ] The apostle, having finished his apologue, comes to his application.

    As the members in the human body, so the different members of the mystical body of Christ. All are intended by him to have the same relation to each other; to be mutually subservient to each other; to mourn for and rejoice with each other. He has also made each necessary to the beauty, proportion, strength, and perfection of the whole. Not one is useless; not one unnecessary. Paul, Apollos, Kephas, &c., with all their variety of gifts and graces, are for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, Eph. iv. 12. Hence no teacher should be exalted above or opposed to an other. As the eye cannot say to the hand, I have no need of thee, so luminous Apollos cannot say to labourious Paul, I can build up and preserve the Church without thee. The foot planted on the ground to support the whole fabric, and the hands that swing at liberty, and the eye that is continually taking in near and distant prospects, are all equally serviceable to the whole, and mutually helpful to and dependent on each other. So also are the different ministers and members of the Church of Christ.

    From a general acquaintance with various ministers of Christ, and a knowledge of their different talents and endowments manifested either by their preaching or writings, and with the aid of a little fancy, we could here make out a sort of correspondency between their services and the uses of the different members of the human body. We could call one eye, because of his acute observation of men and things, and penetration into cases of conscience and Divine mysteries. Another hand, from his labourious exertions in the Church. Another foot, from his industrious travels to spread abroad the knowledge of Christ crucified: and so of others. But this does not appear to be any part of the apostle's plan.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 27. Now ye are the body of Christ , etc.] Not his natural body, which his Father prepared for him, in which he bore our sins on the tree, and which was offered up once for all; nor his sacramental body, or the bread in the supper, which is a representation of his body; but his body mystical, the church; not that the Corinthians were the whole of the body, only a part of it, as every single congregational church is of the church universal. This is an accommodation of the simile the apostle had to so much advantage enlarged upon: and members in particular ; or in part: meaning either that they as single members were part of the general body: or that only a part of them were so, there being some among them, as in all particular and visible churches, who had not the true grace of God; and so are neither members of Christ, nor of the general assembly and church of the firstborn: or the sense is, that they were not only members of Christ, and of his body, but were particularly members one of another, in strict union and close communion, and of mutual use and service to each other.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 27-31 - Contempt,
    hatred, envy, and strife, are very unnatural in Christians It is like the members of the same body being without concern for on another, or quarrelling with each other. The proud, contentious spiri that prevailed, as to spiritual gifts, was thus condemned. The office and gifts, or favours, dispensed by the Holy Spirit, are noticed. Chie ministers; persons enabled to interpret Scripture; those who laboure in word and doctrine; those who had power to heal diseases; such a helped the sick and weak; such as disposed of the money given in charity by the church, and managed the affairs of the church; and suc as could speak divers languages. What holds the last and lowest rank in this list, is the power to speak languages; how vain, if a man does s merely to amuse or to exalt himself! See the distribution of thes gifts, not to every one alike, ver. #(29, 30). This were to make the church all one, as if the body were all ear, or all eye. The Spiri distributes to every one as he will. We must be content though we ar lower and less than others. We must not despise others, if we have greater gifts. How blessed the Christian church, if all the members di their duty! Instead of coveting the highest stations, or the mos splendid gifts, let us leave the appointment of his instruments to God and those in whom he works by his providence. Remember, those will no be approved hereafter who seek the chief places, but those who are mos faithful to the trust placed in them, and most diligent in their Master's work __________________________________________________________________
