Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:1

Commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:1

(Read 1 Corinthians 11:1)

The first verse of this chapter seems properly to be the close to the last. The apostle not only preached such doctrine as they ought to believe, but led such a life as they ought to live. Yet Christ being our perfect example, the actions and conduct of men, as related in the Scriptures, should be followed only so far as they are like to his.
