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.

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.

    "Comfort the feeble-minded, support the weak, warn the unruly..." Luke 13:23-29 the Lord declares plainly, as in MANY, MANY places; that not everyone who says to Him, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father." Not the hearers are justified, but the doers! God is not tricked by lip service! If any man have not the Spirit of Christ he is none of His.
