a
workfellow under: Probably the various forms of the MSS. here are due to correctors who wished to soften what they did not relish or understand. א omits τὸν συνεργον ἠμῶν, B omits τοῦ θεοῦ. The Clermont copy seems to have preserved the true text as given above, though some erroneously here, as elsewhere, render it "fellow-worker with God." Compare 1 Cor. 3:9; 2 Cor. 6:1. "Under God" may be a paraphrase, but seems in our tongue needed to guard from a mistake against which true knowledge of God and His word ought to have preserved souls. The Greek genitive admits of relations far wider than the English. It is a question of contextual requirement. (Epist. to the Thessalonians, p.31)
workfellow under: Chapter 3:2 brings before us a text variously found in the MSS. But if συνεργὸν τοῦ θεοῦ be read, as in the margin, "fellow-worker with God" will not do, for reasons already stated in discussing 1 Corinthians 3, etc. It is not the thought at all, however pleasing to man's nature. God employs laborers as work-fellows; but He is no work-fellow of theirs. It is irreverent. In the text... [the RV reads] διάκονον, "minister," as the Vatican copy omits τοῦ θεοῦ, and thus either way the difficulty is avoided. But there is really none when the word is rendered, not as by mere scholarship, but in the knowledge of God. (Bible Treasury 14:15)
