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.

  • Andrew Azariah
    A key verse in this chapter is v13 " In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,"
    The believer is sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when he/she believed in Christ Jesus. This is the heritage of every Christian believer. No Christian believer needs to doubt if he/she has the Holy Spirit. Glory

    To Joyce Cardoza - Since you must know which scriptures aren't for all of us - I wish you had listed 3-4 on here so I could look them up ............
  • 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
