Footnotes

  1. 1 Corinthians 8:4 snAn idol in this world is nothing” and “There is no God but one.” Here and in v. 1 Paul cites certain slogans the Corinthians apparently used to justify their behavior (cf. 6:12-13; 7:1; 10:23). Paul agrees with the slogans in part, but corrects them to show how the Corinthians have misused these ideas.
  2. 1 Corinthians 8:6 tn Grk “through whom [are] all things and we [are] through him.”
