Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 1:23


1:23 The fulness of him that filleth all in all - It is hard to say in what sense this can be spoken of the church; but the sense is easy and natural, if we refer it to Christ, who is the fulness of the Father.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:23


Eph 1:23 Which is his body. His spiritual body, living by union with the Head, pervaded by the life of Christ. The fulness of him. The church is a manifestation of the fullness of Christ, the body filled by his life, who filleth all in all. Filleth all things with his majesty and power. The object of the last four verses is to describe Christ's glories. These are: (1) His resurrection; (2) His Exaltation to God's Right Hand; (3) His Supreme Dominion; (4) His Headship to the Church, his Body, filled with His Fullness. These glories all follow his stooping unto the death of the cross. He abased himself that he might be exalted. See Heb 12:2.

Discussion for Ephesians 1

  • Joyce Cardoza
    God said you must rightly devide the word, and we are also in the dispensation of Grace, the entire Bible is written for us, but not every verse is addressed to us, or written about us, if you read the red letters of Jesus Christ, then read what He taught after he paid our sin debt, and you really knew how to read and teach the truth, you would not teach the way you do, Ephesians 2:8 it was hidden
  • Michael c theriault
    thank you lord for saving me lord and washing my sins away
  • Clyde Lester Banks
    I believe that Ephesians is the definition of the salvation method of all the believers. Who believe that Jesus Christ is the one true God, and the creator of all the people of the Earth, and Angels, and all things from the foundation of the world. Called to be saints by receiving the spirit of God in them-with the Holy Ghost of God. They that worship Him, must worship him in spirit and in truth.
  • Word
    Bible reader that's true and God is a righteous Judge so when the Great White Throne Judgment occurrs it is your actions and what you did is what condemns a person or if good they get good rewards. If one truly is sorry and that sin is heart felt because God knows and one ask for forgiveness it will be cleared through Christ.
  • Bible reader
    JESUS loves everyone NOT the sin that the individual does.
  • Word
    Chosen saints the elect before the foundation because they knew and know the truth of the word. Predestin from before the foundation. Reads like Jeremiah that GOD KNEW them before this earth age of the flesh and they are destin to stand with Christ.
