Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 3:19


3:19 And to know - But the apostle corrects himself, and immediately observes, it cannot be fully known. This only we know, that the love of Christ surpasses all knowledge. That ye may be filled - Which is the sum of all. With all the fulness of God - With all his light, love, wisdom, holiness, power, and glory. A perfection far beyond a bare freedom from sin.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 3:19


Eph 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge. This is one of Paul's paradoxes, like 1Ti 5:6. They could know something of the love of Christ, but we can never fully comprehended the infinite. That ye be filled with all the fulness of God. Filled with God's grace to the full.

    That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: as a Gentile, I was lost and knew nothing of Jesus Christ, but now, Jesus had chosen Paul to minister to Gentile and share the gospel of the Grace of God. Glory be to God for his only begotten Son for the blood that was shed on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead . Amen
