    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:11

    ¶ Porque nadie puede poner otro fundamento que el que est puesto, el cual es Jess, el Cristo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 3:11

    Verse 11. Other
    foundation can no man lay] I do not speak particularly concerning the foundation of this spiritual building; it can have no other foundation than Jesus Christ: there cannot be two opinions on this subject among the true apostles of our Lord. The only fear is, lest an improper use should be made of this heavenly doctrine; lest a bad superstructure should be raised on this foundation.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. For other
    foundation can no man lay , etc.] Men may attempt to lay other foundations than Christ, and build upon them, but to no purpose; they will be of no avail; all besides him are sandy foundations; such as fleshly privileges, a carnal descent, a religious education, an external profession of religion, a mans own righteousness, and the absolute mercy of God; but men ought to lay no other, nor can they, that will be of any advantage to themselves or others: than that which is laid ; by Jehovah the Father, both in his eternal counsels and covenant, when he set forth and appointed Christ to be the Saviour and Redeemer of his people; and in the fulness of time, when he sent him forth under the same characters; and by the Spirit of God, when he reveals Christ to them, and forms him in them; and by the ministers of the Gospel, who jointly agree to lay him ministerially, as the foundation for souls to build their hope upon: hence he is called the foundation of the apostles and prophets, as here, which is Jesus Christ ; he is the foundation personally considered, as Godman and Mediator, on which the church, and every believer is built; he is the foundation of the covenant of grace, and of eternal salvation; of the faith and hope, peace, joy, and comfort of all the saints; and of the building of God, that house not made with hands, that city which has foundations, eternal glory in the other world; and he is the foundation, doctrinally considered; or the doctrines of his proper, deity, of his divine and eternal sonship, of his incarnation, of his Messiahship, of his obedience, sufferings, death, and resurrection from the dead, of justification by his righteousness, pardon by his blood, and atonement by his sacrifice, etc. are fundamental ones: the Jews were wont to call the principal articles of their religion, ydwsy , foundations: Maimondes has entitled one of his tracts, hrwth ydwsy the foundations of the law; but the doctrines respecting the person, offices, and grace of Christ, are the only foundation of the Gospel.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-15 - The
    apostle was a wise master-builder; but the grace of God made his such. Spiritual pride is abominable; it is using the greatest favour of God, to feed our own vanity, and make idols of ourselves. But le every man take heed; there may be bad building on a good foundation Nothing must be laid upon it, but what the foundation will bear, an what is of a piece with it. Let us not dare to join a merely human or carnal life with a Divine faith, the corruption of sin with the profession of Christianity. Christ is a firm, abiding, and immovabl Rock of ages, every way able to bear all the weight that God himself of the sinner can lay upon him; neither is there salvation in any other Leave out the doctrine of his atonement, and there is no foundation for our hopes. But of those who rest on this foundation, there are tw sorts. Some hold nothing but the truth as it is in Jesus, and preac nothing else. Others build on the good foundation what will not abid the test, when the day of trail comes. We may be mistaken in ourselve and others; but there is a day coming that will show our actions in the true light, without covering or disguise. Those who spread true an pure religion in all its branches, and whose work will abide in the great day, shall receive a reward. And how great! how much exceedin their deserts! There are others, whose corrupt opinions and doctrines or vain inventions and usages in the worship of God, shall be mad known, disowned, and rejected, in that day. This is plainly meant of figurative fire, not of a real one; for what real fire can consum religious rites or doctrines? And it is to try every man's works, thos of Paul and Apollos, as well as others. Let us consider the tendency of our undertakings, compare them with God's word, and judge ourselves that we be not judged of the Lord.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:11 {Other
    foundation} (qemelion allon). The gender of the adjective is here masculine as is shown by allon. If neuter, it would be allo. It is masculine because Paul has Christ in mind. It is not here heteron a different kind of gospel (heteron euaggelion, #Ga 1:6; 2Co 11:4) which is not another (allo, #Ga 1:7) in reality. But another Jesus (#2Co 11:4, allon iesoun) is a reflection on the one Lord Jesus. Hence there is no room on the platform with Jesus for another Savior, whether Buddha, Mahomet, Dowie, Eddy, or what not. Jesus Christ is the one foundation and it is gratuitous impudence for another to assume the role of Foundation. {Than that which is laid, which is Christ Jesus} (para ton keimenon, hos estin iesous cristos). Literally, "alongside (para) the one laid (keimenon)," already laid (present middle participle of keimai, used here as often as the perfect passive of tiqemi in place of tetheimenon). Paul scouts the suggestion that one even in the interest of so-called "new thought" will dare to lay beside Jesus another foundation for religion. And yet I have seen an article by a professor in a theological seminary in which he advocates regarding Jesus as a landmark, not as a goal, not as a foundation. Clearly Paul means that on this one true foundation, Jesus Christ, one must build only what is in full harmony with the Foundation which is Jesus Christ. If one accuses Paul of narrowness, it can be replied that the architect has to be narrow in the sense of building here and not there. A broad foundation will be too thin and unstable for a solid and abiding structure. It can be said also that Paul is here merely repeating the claim of Jesus himself on this very subject when he quoted #Ps 118:22f. to the members of the Sanhedrin who challenged his authority (#Mr 11:10f.; Mt 21:42-45; Lu 20:17f.). Apostles and prophets go into this temple of God, but Christ Jesus is the chief corner stone (akrogwnaios, #Eph 2:20). All believers are living stones in this temple (#1Pe 2:5). But there is only one foundation possible.
