The apostle, in this chapter, answers another case
proposed to him by some of the Corinthians, about eating those
things that had been sacrificed to idols. I. He hints at the
occasion of this case, and gives a caution against too high an
esteem of their knowledge, ver.
1-3. II. He asserts the vanity of idols, the unity of
the Godhead, and the sole mediation of Christ between God and man,
ver. 4-6. III. He tells
them that upon supposition that it were lawful in itself to eat of
things offered to idols (for that they themselves are nothing), yet
regard must be had to the weakness of Christian brethren, and
nothing done that would lay a stumbling block before them, and
occasion their sin and destruction, ver. 7 to the end.
