Scofield's Reference Notes

1 Corinthians 7

Verse 12

speak

So far from disclaiming inspiration, the apostle associates his teaching with the Lord's. Cases had arisen (e.g.) 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 as the Gospel overflowed Jewish limitations, not comprehended in the words of Jesus ; Matthew 5:31; Matthew 5:32; Matthew 19:5-9 which were an instruction, primarily, to Israel. These new conditions demanded authoritative settlement, and only the inspired words of an apostle could give that. 1 Corinthians 7:40.
