Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 1:13

_ _ Is Christ divided? — into various parts (one under one leader, another under another) [Alford]. The unity of His body is not to be cut in pieces, as if all did not belong to Him, the One Head.

_ _ was Paul crucified for you? — In the Greek the interrogation implies that a strong negative answer is expected: “Was it Paul (surely you will not say so) that was crucified for you?” In the former question the majesty of “Christ” (the Anointed One of God) implies the impossibility of His being “divided.” in the latter, Paul’s insignificance implies the impossibility of his being the head of redemption, “crucified for” them, and giving his name to the redeemed. This, which is true of Paul the founder of the Church of Corinth, holds equally good of Cephas and Apollos, who had not such a claim as Paul in the Corinthian Church.

_ _ crucified ... baptized — The cross claims us for Christ, as redeemed by Him; baptism, as dedicated to Him.

_ _ in the name — rather, “into the name” (Galatians 3:27), implying the incorporation involved in the idea of baptism.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 1:10-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 1:13

Is Christ divided — Are not all the members still under one head? Was not he alone crucified for you all; and were ye not all baptized in his name? The glory of Christ then is not to be divided between him and his servants; neither is the unity of the body to be torn asunder, seeing Christ is one still.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 1:13

(15) Is Christ divided? was (16) Paul crucified for you? or were ye (17) baptized in the name of Paul?

(15) The first reason why divisions ought to be avoided: because Christ seems by that means to be divide and torn in pieces, who cannot be the head of two different and disagreeing bodies, being himself one.

(16) Another reason: because they cannot without great injury to God so depend on men as on Christ: which thing those no doubt do who allow whatever some man speaks, and do it for their own sakes: as these men allowed one and the very same Gospel being uttered by one man, and did loathe it being uttered by another man. So that these factions were called by the names of their teachers. Now Paul sets aside his own name, not simply to grieve no man, but also to show that he does not plead his own cause.

(17) The third reason taken from the form and end of baptism, in which we make a promise to Christ, calling also on the name of the Father, and the Holy Spirit. Therefore although a man does not fall from the doctrine of Christ, yet if he depends upon certain teachers, and despises others, he forsakes Christ: for if he holds Christ as his only master, he would hear him, no matter who Christ taught by.
