This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 11:29. Κρίμα) [without the article, comp. v. 32.-Not. crit.] some judgment, a disease, or the death of the body; see next verse; so that those who do not discern the Lord’s body have to atone for it in their bodies. He does not say to τὸ κατάκριμα, the condemnation.-μἠ διακρίνων, not judging as to [discerning]) Comp. Heb 10:29.-τὸ σῶμα, the body) supply, and the blood.-τοῦ Κυρίου, of the Lord) An Antonomasia [an appellative instead of the proper name], i.e. Jesus. The Church is not called the body of Jesus, or the body of the Lord; but the body of Christ: The question here then is about the proper body of the Lord Jesus.
