Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 16:8

_ _ at Ephesus — whence Paul writes this Epistle. Compare 1 Corinthians 16:19, “Asia,” wherein Ephesus was.

_ _ until Pentecost — He seems to have stayed as he here purposes: for just when the tumult which drove him away broke out, he was already intending to leave Ephesus (Acts 19:21, Acts 19:22). Combined with 1 Corinthians 5:7, 1 Corinthians 5:8, this verse fixes the date of this Epistle to a few weeks before Pentecost, and very soon after the Passover.
