Did you originate the word of God? (1 Cor. 14:36)

“Did the word of God

Originate with you?

Are you the only ones

It has reached?”

Ἢ ἀφ’ ὑμῶν ὁ λόγος τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐξῆλθεν, ἢ εἰς ὑμᾶς μόνους κατήντησεν;

Paul then asked “Did the word of God originate with you?  Are you the only ones that it has reached?”  Paul asked two questions.  One was about whether the word of God had left them or gone out from them.  Were they the ones who started the word of God?  Secondly, are they the only ones who ever received the word of God?  Paul was reprimanding them with these questions.  They certainly did not originate the word of God.  They were not sending it out.  They were not the only ones in the world to hear the word of God.  In other words, they were not as unique as they thought that they were.  Do you sometimes think that you are more unique than you actually are?
