1 Corinthians 5:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Leaven

Not the sinful man, but evil of every kind, in accordance with the more general statement of the leavening, power of evil in 1 Corinthians 5:6. The apostle's metaphor is shaped by the commands concerning the removal of leaven at the passover: Exodus 12:19; Exodus 13:7. Compare Ignatius; "Dispense, therefore, with the evil leaven that has grown old (παλαιωθεῖσαν) and that has gone sour (ἐνοξίσασαν), and be changed into new leaven which is Jesus Christ" (Epistle to Magnesians, 10).

New (νέον)

See on Matthew 26:29.

Passover (τὸ πάσχα)

The Paschal lamb, as Mark 14:12; Luke 22:7.
