1 Corinthians 4:15

To admonish (noutetwn).
Literally, admonishing (present active participle of noutetew). See on 1 Thessalonians 5:12,14.

For though ye should have (ean gar exhte).
Third-class condition undetermined, but with prospect of being determined (ean and present subjunctive), "for if ye have."

Tutors (paidagwgouv).
This old word (paiv, boy, agwgov, leader) was used for the guide or attendant of the child who took him to school as in Galatians 3:24 (Christ being the schoolmaster) and also as a sort of tutor who had a care for the child when not in school. The papyri examples (Moulton and Milligan, Vocabulary) illustrate both aspects of the paedagogue. Here it is the "tutor in Christ" who is the Teacher. These are the only two N.T. examples of the common word.

I begot you (umav egennhsa).
Paul is their {spiritual father} in Christ, while Apollos and the rest are their {tutors} in Christ.
