    VERSE (3) -
    2Co 10:8-10

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:3

    pues buscis una prueba de Cristo que habla en mí, el cual no es flaco para con vosotros, antes es poderoso en vosotros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 13:3

    Verse 3. Since ye
    seek a proof of Christ] The conversion of the Corinthians was to themselves a solid proof that Christ spoke by the apostle; and therefore he could, with great propriety, say that this power of Christ, far from being weak, was mighty among them.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. Since ye
    seek a proof of Christ speaking in me , etc..] This is the reason why he was determined, that should he come among them, he would not spare them, because they called in question his apostleship, and demanded a proof of it; which, of all men, they had the least reason to do; for they themselves were the seals of his apostleship, and the signs of an apostle had been done among them; they queried whether he was an ambassador of Christ, and was sent by him, and in his name; whether the message he came with was from him, and whether the Gospel he preached was his voice; and particularly whether he had such a power to punish delinquents, as he threatened them with the exercise of; a strange infatuation of the false apostles this, since Christ, who sent him, was with him, and spoke in him, and by him: which to you-ward , says he, is not weak, but is mighty in you ; the Gospel of Christ, at the first preaching of it to them by him, was the power of God unto salvation to them; and was attended with divers signs and wonders, and gifts of the Holy Ghost; and besides, they had instances of the power of Christ towards them in an awful way, in punishing sinners; as in the delivery of the incestuous person to Satan, which was done by his Spirit being with them when assembled; and by smiting many of them with sickness, diseases, and infirmities, and with death itself, who had sinned, ( 1 Corinthians 5:4,5 11:30). Wherefore, seeing after all these instances of the voice and power of Christ in him, they yet questioned his apostolical authority, and sought proof of it; and especially since this was not so much a tempting of him, as a tempting of Christ in him, he was resolved not to spare them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - Though it is
    God's gracious method to bear long with sinners, yet he will not bear always; at length he will come, and will not spare thos who remain obstinate and impenitent. Christ at his crucifixion appeared as only a weak and helpless man, but his resurrection and lif showed his Divine power. So the apostles, how mean and contemptibl soever they appeared to the world, yet, as instruments, they manifeste the power of God. Let them prove their tempers, conduct, an experience, as gold is assayed or proved by the touchstone. If the could prove themselves not to be reprobates, not to be rejected of Christ, he trusted they would know that he was not a reprobate, no disowned by Christ. They ought to know if Christ Jesus was in them, by the influences, graces, and indwelling of his Spirit, by his kingdo set up in their hearts. Let us question our own souls; either we ar true Christians, or we are deceivers. Unless Christ be in us by his Spirit, and power of his love, our faith is dead, and we are ye disapproved by our Judge.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    3. A
    proof of Christ speaking in me (dokimhn tou en emoi lalountov Cristou). Lit., of the Christ that speaks in me. An experimental proof of what kind of a being the Christ who speaks in me is. In you (en umin). Better, among you. He is speaking, not of Christ as He dwells in them, but as He works with reference to them (eiv) and among their number, inflicting punishment for their sin.

    Through (ex). Lit., out of, marking the source of both death and life. Are weak in Him. The parallel with ver. 3 must be carefully noted. Christ will prove Himself not weak, but mighty among you. He was crucified out of weakness, but He is mighty out of the power of God. A similar weakness and power will appear in our case. We are weak in Him, in virtue of our fellowship with Him. Like Him we endure the contradiction of sinners, and suffer from the violence of men: in fellowship with His risen life we shall be partakers of the power of God which raised Him from the dead, and shall exhibit this life of power toward you in judging and punishing you.

    Toward you. Construe with we shall live.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:3 {A proof of Christ} (dokimen tou cristou). He will give it to them. "I will not spare." He will show that Christ speaks "in me" (en emoi).
