1 Corinthians 3:5

What then? (ti oun;).
He does not say tiv (who), but ti (what), neuter singular interrogative pronoun.

Ministers (diakonoi).
Not leaders of parties or sects, but merely servants through whom ye believed. The etymology of the word Thayer gives as dia and koniv "raising dust by hastening." In the Gospels it is the servant (Matthew 20:26) or waiter (John 2:5). Paul so describes himself as a minister (Colossians 1:23,25). The technical sense of deacon comes later (Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:8,12).

As the Lord gave to him (wv o Kuriov edwken).
