People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 3:15


Eph 3:15 Of whom. The Father is referred to. The words "Of our Lord Jesus Christ" of Eph 3:14 are not found in the best manuscripts and are omitted in the Revised Version. The whole family in heaven and earth is named. In the Revised Version, "Every family". The idea is that the Father is the Father of all the families of his children, whether Jews or Gentiles on earth, or in heaven. He is "Our Father in heaven" (Mt 6:9 Lu 11:2) to the believer of every race, in this world or the world to come. All, as far as creation is concerned, derive their being from him, like children from a parent, and all the good are his spiritual children.
