Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 3:22

_ _ Enumeration of some of the “all things.” The teachers, in whom they gloried, he puts first (1 Corinthians 1:12). He omits after “Cephas” or Christ (to whom exclusively some at Corinth, 1 Corinthians 1:12, professed to belong); but, instead, substitutes “ye are Christ’s” (1 Corinthians 3:23).

_ _ world ... life ... death ... things present ... things to come — Not only shall they not “separate you from the love of God in Christ” (Romans 8:38, Romans 8:39), but they “all are yours,” that is, are for you (Romans 8:28), and belong to you, as they belong to Christ your Head (Hebrews 1:2).

_ _ things present — “things actually present” [Alford].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 3:21-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 3:22

Whether Paul or Apollos, or Cephas — We are all equally yours, to serve you for Christ's sake. Or the world — This leap from Peter to the world greatly enlarges the thought, and argues a kind of impatience of enumerating the rest. Peter and every one in the whole world, however excellent in gifts, or grace, or office, are also your servants for Christ's sake. Or life, or death — These, with all their various circumstances, are disposed as will be most for your advantage. Or things present — On earth. Or things to come — In heaven. Contend, therefore, no more about these little things; but be ye united in love, as ye are in blessings.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 3:22

Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the (12) world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

(12) He passes from the persons to the things themselves, that his argument may be more forcible. Indeed, he ascends from Christ to the Father, to show that we rest ourselves not in Christ himself, in that he is man, but because he carries us up even to the Father, as Christ witnesses of himself everywhere that he was sent by his Father, that by this band we may be all united with God himself.
