1 Cor 12:13 For <gar> <kai> by <en> one <heis> Spirit <pneuma> are <baptizo> we <hemeis> all <pas> baptized <baptizo> into <eis> one <heis> body <soma>, whether <eite> we be Jews <Ioudaios> or <eite> Gentiles <Hellen>, whether <eite> we be bond <doulos> or <eite> free <eleutheros>; and <kai> have been <potizo> all <pas> made to drink <potizo> into <eis> one <heis> Spirit <pneuma>. (Greek} (KJV) 13 Nous avons tous, en effet, été baptisés dans un seul Esprit, pour former un seul corps, soit Juifs, soit Grecs, soit esclaves, soit libres, et nous avons tous été abreuvés d'un seul Esprit. (LSV) Joh 6:63; 7:37-39; Ro 6:5; Ga 3:28; Eph 2:13-14,16; Col 3:11 Comments: 1) "For by one Spirit." (kai gar en eni pneumati) "For even in one Spirit." As there is one physical body and one church body, each with functioning members, there is also one Holy Spirit through whom and in whom and by whom eternal life is imparted and spiritual gifts are distributed to each member of the local assembly. 2) "Are we all baptized into one body." (pantes eis en soma ebaptisthemen) "We are (were) all immersed (eis) with reference to one body or assembly." This alludes first to one's being saved, in the Spirit, and second to his being baptized, (immersed) with reference to the one body, or church assembly. Note, that on Pentecost, all who received the charismatic gifts had first been saved, (in the Spirit) and second, baptized in water, with reference to our Lord's church-following-company-duties; To receive the charismatic tongues gifts, individually, each received them through the "once for all" baptism of the Holy Ghost which came upon the church of Pentecost. He distributed to each according to His will, Ac 2:1-4; 1Co 12:11. 3) "Whether we be Jews or Gentile " (eite foudaioi eite hellenes) "Whether Jews or Greeks." The order was 1) salvation, 2) water baptismal identity with one local congregation, and 3) in the one body, gifts were distributed to each. 4) "Whether we be bond or free. " (eite dou lo i eite elutheroi) "Whether we be slaves or free men." Impartially, the Holy Spirit (vice-gerent of Christ in the church) parceled out or distributed to each member of each congregation His gifts. 5) "And have been all made to drink into one Spirit." (kai pantes en pneuma epotistheroi) n-And all one spirit were given to drink or partake." The term "all one spirit were given to partake or drink" refers to the subject matter of distribution of charismatic gifts - this "once for all gift," which Jesus promised to send to the church, to be with and in her forever came to the church as a local institution, body, or assembly on Pentecost, since which time, He has continued in that one body, (kind of body) local assembly, to distribute to each member charismatic energy power or gifts of the remaining three, as He wills, even as He did before the Bible was completed - Joh 14:13-17; 1Co 13:13. It was to the church " ye" that the Holy Ghost came for empowering, Ac 2:1-4. Garner Commentary.
