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.

    I think the book of Ephesians claims the supreme power of Jesus Christ to supersede any other power in earth and in Heaven

    EPHESIANS 1:13 in whom you also trusted after that you heard the word of truth the gospel of your salvation in whom also after that you believed you were sealed with that holy spirit of promise 2 CORINTHIANS 1:21 NOW HE WHICH ESTABLISHETH US WITH YOU IN CHRIST AND HATH ANOINTED US IS GOD --1:22--WHO HATH ALSO SEALED US AND GIVEN THE EARNEST OF THE SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS

    Ephesians 1:3 answers the universal questions posed by Ecclesiastes 1:14
  • Robert E Hutchinson
    Where in the Bible does say that We must be born again and again and again. Does it not say Once saved always saved, and what about the verse where Jesus says, no Man can pluck You out of My hand. In Roman's it says Who so ever SHALL call upon the Name of Jesus SHALL be saved, not again and again and again, etc.
