I see in this verse the beginning of the breaking up of the one mind in the Church of the Body.
Because when he calls the elders together in Acts 20:30, he says:
“Also of your own selves will men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away
disciples after them.”
I will show you, as I get into this word, that these were all bishops that he called together, top
brass. Of them and Apollos, I believe, was one of them. This indication in Corinthians is that
Apollos did not respond to Paul’s leadership. “Much I exhorted him”; Paul begged him to go
“with the rest of the brethren” But he said, “Well, I won’t go now; I’ll go when it’s more
convenient for me to go.” In other words, “When I finish what I want to do, then I’ll go. But I
won’t go now.” And that’s standing against the greatest revelation the greatest apostle ever had.
That makes Apollos wrong.
