1 Corinthians 10:18 Parallel
Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

10:18 Consider Israel after the flesh - Christians are the spiritual Israel of God. Are not they who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar - Is not this an act of communion with that God to whom they are offered? And is not the case the same with those who eat of the sacrifices which have been offered to idols?

God's Glory the Chief End of Man's Being
