The Greek adverb anaxios

When given their English equivalent spellings, the Greek adjective anaxios and the Greek adverb anaxios appear to be the same word.  Although these two Greek terms are quite similar in the Greek language, they are different terms.

The Greek adverb anaxios is found in 1 Cor. 11:27 and in some of our manuscripts for 1 Cor. 11:29.  A simple definition for this adverb is “unworthy manner.”

Paul warned the Corinthians about partaking of the Lord’s Supper in an unworthy manner.  Of course, every other aspect of worship may also be done in an unworthy way.
