For it was from the Lord that I received the facts which, in turn, I handed on to you; how that the Lord Jesus, on the night He was to be betrayed, took some bread,
1 Corinthians 11:23 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
I received (ἐγὼ παρέλαβον)
I is emphatic, giving the weight of personal authority to the statement. The question whether Paul means that he received directly from Christ, or mediately through the apostles or tradition, turns on a difference between two prepositions. Strictly, ἀπὸ from or of, with the Lord, would imply the more remote source, from the Lord, through the apostles; but Paul does not always observe the distinction between this and παρά, from the preposition of the nearer source (see Greek, Colossians 1:7; Colossians 3:24); and this latter preposition compounded with the verb received, the emphatic I, and the mention of the fact itself, are decisive of the sense of an immediate communication from Christ to Paul.
Important as expressing the identity of the account of Jesus with his own.
He was betrayed (παρεδίδετο)
Imperfect tense, and very graphic. He was being betrayed. He instituted the Eucharist while His betrayal was going on.
