1 Corinthians 12:3 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Calleth Jesus accursed (λέγει Ἁνάθεμα Ἱησοῦς)

Lit., saith Anathema Jesus. Rev., preserving the formula, saith Jesus is Anathema. Compare Acts 18:6, and see on offerings, Luke 21:5. Paul uses only the form ἀνάθεμα, and always in the sense of accursed.
