“How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,”
King James Version (KJV)
3:3 The mystery - Of salvation by Christ alone, and that both to Jews and gentiles. As I wrote before - Namely, #Eph 1:9|,10; the very words of which passage he here repeats.
Eph 3:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me. See Ga 1:12. The mystery. This mystery was revealed by God to him. A mystery is a truth, or fact, or purpose, which is hidden until it is revealed. This mystery is declared in Eph 3:6. As I wrote afore in few words. In Eph 1:9 2:11-13.
