1 Corinthians 1:6

Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
Read Chapter 1


AD 400
The testimony of Christ has been confirmed in them because they have been strengthened by their faith. They had come to put no trust in human things. Rather, all their hope was in Christ, for they were ensnared neither by pleasure nor by the enticements of pleasure. Commentary on Paul’s Epistles.

Cornelius a Lapide

AD 1637
Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you—i.e, by which, as by two testimonies, the Christian faith was founded and established in you. For the Greeks interpret the Greek καθώς, i.e, even as, by enallage, δι ών, through which, that Isaiah , the word and knowledge. Others interpret, Even as the testimony, thus: by which things, viz, by the preaching of the Gospel, and by the knowledge of it, as by a sure testimony, it is known that you are faithful and disciples of Christ.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
As the testimony of Christ, what Christ testified and taught was confirmed in you, that is, your faith in Christ hath been confirmed by those graces and gifts which you received from the Holy Spirit at your baptism, and when by imposition of hands you were confirmed by me, or some other bishop. (Witham)

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Under the color of praises and thanksgiving he touches them sharply. For not by heathen philosophy, says he, neither by heathen discipline, but the grace of God, and by the riches, and the knowledge, and the word given by Him, were you enabled to learn the doctrines of the truth, and to be confirmed unto the testimony of the Lord; that is, unto the Gospel. For you had the benefit of many signs, many wonders, unspeakable grace, to make you receive the Gospel. If therefore you were established by signs and grace, why do you waver? Now these are the words of one both reproving, and at the same time prepossessing them in his favor.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
