"KOINWNEITW DE hO KATHCOUMENOS TON LOGON TWi KATHCOUNTI EN PASIN AGAQOIS."
The somewhat idiosyncratic (to me) Frederic Rendall in The Expositor's
Greek Testament says this verse is enjoining the leaders of the churches to
let all the members participate in the spiritual blessings which they (the
leaders) enjoy - which is the exact opposite of how most translations
render it. Most seem to view it as an instruction to students to share
"good things" (money?) with their teachers, rather than Rendall's view that
Paul is telling the teachers to share all the spiritual blessings they
enjoy with their students (i.e., to prevent the elitism Paul was trying to
combat via this epistle).
