Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 2:5


2:5 He hath quickened us together with Christ - In conformity to him, and by virtue of our union with him. By grace ye are saved - Grace is both the beginning and end. The apostle speaks indifferently either in the first or second person; the Jews and gentiles being in the same circumstance, both by nature and by grace. This text lays the axe to the very root of spiritual pride, and all glorying in ourselves. Therefore St. Paul, foreseeing the backwardness of mankind to receive it, yet knowing the absolute necessity of its being received, again asserts the very same truth, #Eph 2:8|, in the very same words.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 2:5


Eph 2:5 Hath quickened us together with Christ. As he quickened Christ and raised him, so when we were dead in sins he gave us spiritual life by the gospel and lifted us to a new life. "We were planted in the likeness of his death and resurrection" (Ro 6:5). By grace ye are saved. Not by works of the law, as he has shown so fully in the Galatian letter.

    "..in time past ye walked according to the course of this world..in times past in the lusts of our flesh..in time past Gentiles in the flesh..Wherefore remember..That at that time ye were without Christ.." To anyone who says to you, that we sin every day, and we can't help but sin; say, Unto what then is the Name of Jesus to us? and how can we be Saved from our sins, but still in our sins?

    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
