1 Corinthians 2:8 Parallel
Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

2:8 Had they known it - That wisdom. They would not have crucified - Punished as a slave. The Lord of glory - The giving Christ this august title, peculiar to the great Jehovah, plainly shows him to be the supreme God. In like manner the Father is styled, the Father of glory, Eph 1:17; and the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of glory, 1Pet 4:14. The application of this title to all the three, shows that the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are the God of glory; as the only true God is called, Psa 29:3, and Acts 7:2.

The listening ear can hear and understand the communications of God through the things of nature. The green fields, the lofty trees, the buds and flowers, the passing cloud, the falling rain, the babbling brook, the glories of the heavens,

The Personality of the Holy Spirit.
Before one can correctly understand the work of the Holy Spirit, he must first of all know the Spirit Himself. A frequent source of error and fanaticism about the work of the Holy Spirit is the attempt to study and understand His work without first of all coming to know Him as a Person. It is of the highest importance from the standpoint of worship that we decide whether the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, worthy to receive our adoration, our faith, our love, and our entire surrender to Himself,
