Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Colossians 1:14


1:14 In whom we have redemption - This is treated of from the middle of #Col 1:18|. The voluntary passion of our Lord appeased the Father's wrath, obtained pardon and acceptance for us, and, consequently, dissolved the dominion and power which Satan had over us through our sins. So that forgiveness is the beginning of redemption, as the resurrection is the completion of it.


People's Bible Notes for Colossians 1:14


Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood. We are redeemed from sin. We were in bondage, but have been purchased. Satan holds us under bondage until our sins are blotted out. The price paid is his blood. Compare Eph 1:7.

    What is that hope of glory? Hope what is hope? Hope is that the love of Jesus Christ that true love will never fail.

    To Jacko - quote, "He gave a part of Himself through Christ Jesus." unquote. Matt. 22:29; Col. 2:9; Jn. 3:34; Job 32:8. I had thought maybe you just hadn't seen these scriptures ..... ?
  • Jacko
    In full essences of Colossians, the Father has brought us in full circle back to HIMSELF! He gave apart of Himself through Christ Jesus. In doing so we come to a place of recognizing JESUS as the Son of God, therefore we humbly come before the throne of grace and recognize what JESUS did for us on the cross and after the cross. God has brought us back to HIMSELF. Our relationship is now with Him.
