Am I not free? 1 Corinthians 9 verses 1 and 2

1 Corinthians 9 verses 1 and 2

1 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? 2 If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 9:1-2 NASB

 

The letter here changes completely.  Instead of dealing with issues with the Corinthian Church, he now discusses his Apostleship.  It is interesting that Paul comes up with three questions.   Perhaps it might be an appropriate activity to try to mirror the opponents of Paul.

Am I not free?

Possibly there were agitators who wanted to say Paul was not free somehow.
