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.

    Today we are seeing mankind being divided by every possible means. Racism, though always there, is boldly showing itself to all. To fight against it , we must view people as Jehovah God does. He desires all men and women to come to the accurate knowledge of the scriptures, so that we all can be saved. Serving him faithfully and correctly is all that matters.

    you have to go to the next verse. Paul was writing a letter to the church in response to what had been told to him. People want to stop with verse 35 but you have to read verse 36. Paul was amazed that they thought this. 1 Corinthians 14 36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
