“And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;”
King James Version (KJV)
2:13 And you who were dead - Doubly dead to God, not only wallowing in trespasses, outward sins, but also in the uncircumcision of your flesh - A beautiful expression for original sin, the inbred corruption of your nature, your uncircumcised heart and affections. Hath he - God the Father. Quickened together with him - Making you partakers of the power of his resurrection. It is evident the apostle thus far speaks, not of justification, but of sanctification only.
Col 2:13 Being dead in your sins. He that is dead in sins is without spiritual or eternal life. To be dead "to" sin is to be delivered from its power. The uncircumcision of your flesh. "The body of the sins of the flesh" (Col 2:11) not having been put off. Hath he made quickened. By the power of the gospel. We are buried with Christ, quickened with him, rise with him. Having forgiven you all trespasses. The gospel comes with the offer of forgiveness. See Ac 2:38.
