Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 2:14


2:14 For he is our peace - Not only as he purchased it, but as he is the very bond and centre of union. He who hath made both - Jews and gentiles, one church. The apostle describes, The conjunction of the gentiles with Israel, #Eph 2:14|,15. And, The conjunction of both with God, #Eph 2:15 |- 18. Each description is subdivided into two parts. And the former part of the one, concerning abolishing the enmity, answers the former part of the other; the latter part of the one, concerning the evangelical decrees, the latter part of the other. And hath broken down the middle wall of partition - Alluding to that wall of old, which separated the court of Israel from the court of the gentiles. Such a wall was the ceremonial law, which Christ had now taken away.

    Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: Wow, was God dealing with Jews first, that's why we were aliens from the commonwealth of Israel. God made promises to the Jews, that's why Jesus wasn't ready for the Gentiles. Paul was chosen. Act 9:15

    Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now, Paul tells us that we have hope as Gentiles with Jesus. Jesus has a plan for all of us, that is the Grace of God pored out on the cross on Calvary. There is now hope . .

    God is good and this i know for myself, it doesn't take a rocket scientist for me to know that in God we have our being, nothing we have done has made us deserving of anything it is only by the grace of god that he even cares. Jesus paved the way and opened doors that would never have opened had it not been for his sacrifice giving his life in exchange for ours. Thank you Jesus for loving me
