Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 5:30


5:30 For we - The reason why Christ nourishes and cherishes the church is, that close connexion between them which is here expressed in the words of Moses, originally spoken concerning Eve. Are members - Are as intimately united to Christ, in a spiritual sense, as if we were literally flesh of his flesh, and bone of his bone.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 5:30


Eph 5:30 We are members of his body. We are all members of Christ's body, the church. But the church is his Bride. Of his flesh, and of his bones. The language of Ge 2:23, where Adam declares that his wife "is bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh", applies to our relation to Christ.

    Verse 4: This shows that God will judge us based on what comes out of our mouths. What we say has an impact on the way that God views us.
  • A disciple
    "This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church." Jesus taught the contentious Jews (John 8) that being Abraham's seed didn't make them Children; but those walking after the same Spirit that Abraham walked those are the true Children. So with respect to being Children of God by faith in Jesus Christ our Lord it is known what kind we are by the kind of behavior and character.
