111 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
111 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
111 Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
111 It pleases me that you continue to remember and honor me by keeping up the traditions of the faith I taught you. All actual authority stems from Christ.
111 Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.
111 And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.
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.
