Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

There is probably a tacit contrast to angels Colossians , such as we find explicitly brought out in Hebrews 1, 2. Observe, by the way, how curiously local as regards number are the references to Christ as the Son. In the Gospels, Rom. Charitas quippe Patris quae in natura ejus est ineffabiliter simplici, nihil est aliud quam ejus ipsa natura atque substantia. Also, there appears to be no parallel expression in the N. But there seems to be no parallel for such a phrase.

Ephesians , Romans Bibliography "Commentary on Colossians ". The unregenerate state is described as the kingdom of darkness. It is one of spiritual gloom in its government, essence, pursuits, and subjects. Above it the heaven is shrouded in dismal eclipse, around it lies dense and impervious gloom, and before it stretches out the shadow of death. What men should believe and what they should do, what they should rest on and what they should hope for, what the mind should fasten on as truth and what the heart should gather in upon itself as a portion, what the spirit should present as acceptable worship and what the conscience should venerate as a rule of duty-all had been a matter of deep per plexity or hopeless uncertainty to the Colossians prior to their spiritual translation.

There were occasionally in the heathen world shrewd guesses at truth - incidental approximations, when some brighter intellect unfolded its cogitations and longings. But the masses were involved in obscurity, and scarcely observed the fitful glimmer of the meteor which had shot over them.

Ignorance, vice, and misery, the triple shades of this darkness, held possession of them.

The deponent verb, from an obsolete form, signifies, first, to draw to oneself, then to rescue, to pluck out of danger. The act of deliverance is still ascribed to the Father, for He alone can achieve the spiritual transportation described in the following clause. The term is therefore an expressive one.

The Colossians had been lifted out of the realm of darkness, their original seat and habitation, and they had been carried into the kingdom of His Son, and colonized in it. They were not as emigrants in search of a home, nor as a company of dissatisfied exiles, but they were marched out of the one territory and settled in the other expressly by Divine guidance.

As a church, men meet together in its sacred assemblies; as a kingdom, they are located as citizens in it. It is therefore a kingdom of light, whose prismatic rays are truth, purity, and happiness. We cannot say, with Olshausen, that the kingdom is regarded in its subjective aspect, for the language is that of objective transference-change of condition, implying, however, change of character. This kingdom is one in which the Colossians were, at the period of Paul's writing to them.

It is not the future heaven, ideally, as Meyer takes it, and in which they were placed only spe et jure , as Gesner, Keil, Koppe, and others have it. It is a present state-but one which is intimately connected with futurity. The one kingdom of God has an earthly and a celestial phasis. It resembles a city divided by a river, but still under the same municipal administration, and having one common franchise. The head of this kingdom is named-.

The apostle is about to descant upon the glory of the Saviour, and therefore he here introduces Him as the Son.

It signifies the Son who possesses His love-or who excites it in the Divine heart. The meaning is the same in either case, for He who possesses the love is the cause of it towards Himself. Sustaining such a relation to the Father, He is the object of boundless and unchanging affection.

Colossians - For He rescued - Verse-by-Verse Commentary

This love corresponds to the nature at once of Him who manifests it and Him who enjoys it. The love of God to one who is His own Image will be in harmony with the Divine nature of both-infinite as its object, and eternal and majestic as the bosom in which it dwells. John Two metaphysical and antagonistic deductions from this clause may be noted.

The first extreme is that of Theodore of Mopsuestia, who affirms that we are here taught that Christ is Son, not by nature, but by adoption. But the apostle is not speaking of the essential relation of the Son to the Father, but of the emotion which such a relationship has created. He does not say how He became the Son; he only says, that as the Son, He is the object of intense affection on the part of the Father. The other extreme is that of Augustine, who argues that love indicates the essence or substance of Deity, out of which the Son sprang.

But Love is an attribute, and not an essence; it belongs to character, and not to substance; it prompts, and does not produce. It is the radiance of the sun, but not the orb itself-the current of the stream, but not the water which forms it. Olshausen's modification of the same hypothesis is liable to similar objections. Nor is God named our Father in Colossians Lastly, our rescue and subsequent settlement are ascribed to God the Father, for His sovereign grace and power alone are equal to the enterprise-and thanks again are due to Him.

Bibliography Eadie, John. Darkness is the element of evil and sin in which sinners are, and from which they have no power of self-deliverance. It is as if an inexorable tyrant held them in bondage. The Father is their deliverer. At the same time he transfers them into another realm, where holiness is predominant, namely, the kingdom of his Son.

The transition is wholly moral, of course, but as marked as if it were from one territory to another. His dear Son —Rather, the Son of his love, as in the margin, the only-begotten of the Father, upon whom his love rests.

This is the positive side; the figure of transferring is a natural one. Into the kingdom, etc. Matthew 13 plainly suggests this present reference. Of the Son of his love. So the best of recent commentators. Other explanations have been suggested; none of them more objectionable than that of the E. Bibliography Schaff, Philip. Paul now explains how God has qualified them for their share in the heavenly inheritance.

On this passage Acts should be compared; the parallels extend to Colossians ; Colossians also. The aorist refers to the time of conversion. The metaphor implies the miserable state of those delivered and the struggle necessary to deliver them.
