Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 2:6


2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all - Such a ransom, the word signifies, wherein a like or equal is given; as an eye for an eye, or life for life: and this ransom, from the dignity of the person redeeming, was more than equivalent to all mankind. To be testified of in due season - Literally, in his own seasons; those chosen by his own wisdom.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 2:6


1Ti 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all. Not for an elect nation, like the Jews, or for the elect individuals arbitrarily selected, but for all men. All men have been redeemed by his blood, if they will accept the ransom. To be testified in due time. The testimony, or preaching of this ransom, was to be given at due seasons.

    We as women should be teaching our children and teaching each other. Gods word is very plain he said a women can not teach a man anything. So let's stop trying to do everything that men do. We have so much work to do all ready!

    My thoughts on this scripture are that God has always been and has always been a Spirit. His Spirit, the Holy Ghost, moved on Mary and she became with child. This fleshly body was Gods plan to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, for He dwelt in that body. Jesus was both God and man. He was the perfect, sinless sacrifice. The man Christ Jesus is our mediator. In the Old Testament God was known by different names. In the New Testament He became known as Jesus, our Saviour.

    Peace, Shalom, every ones comments are biblical so there is truth in every one of them. One truth that stands out is the book of John . In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Our lord and savior is like you said our mediator,our Lord, King of Kings and Lord of Lords . Praise God that he would send us such a gift as Almighty,,King Jesus. Praise God and all the wonderful things he does for the children of men. Peace and good will. Shalom

    Jesus told us to become like a baby, because they don't need hairsplitting theories of verses or subjects! They just want to understand the basic rule "Love" If we could just love our neighbour as ourself , The Lord and ourself we can come a long way , there wouldn't be discussions about hairsplitting subjects!! O boy, we just have to wait when we are united in heaven with Jesus to understand how simple it is, but we have made it sooooo complex.......LOVE!! because God is Love and we still don't understand it!! Look around in the world what we have done in the name of God, but which god they use to do their horrible acts? Jesus still wants to intermeddle , but we push Him aside and want to do it our way, .... look at the results!!

    When Paul said I do not allow a women to teach nor usurp authority over the man , he is not talking about teaching pertaining to ministry in the church, because of Acts 2:17-18 . This is one of the most miss interpreted scriptures in the bible , Eve lead Adam into sin , Adam gave his authority to his wife , Paul is saying don't allow your wife to lead you or teach you husband against God's will.
