Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:24

_ _ Then — after that: next in the succession of “orders” or “ranks.”

_ _ the end — the general resurrection, and final judgment and consummation (Matthew 25:46).

_ _ delivered up ... kingdom to ... Father — (Compare John 13:3). Seeming at variance with Daniel 7:14, “His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away.Really, His giving up of the mediatorial kingdom to the Father, when the end for which the mediatorial economy was established has been accomplished, is altogether in harmony with its continuing everlastingly. The change which shall then take place, shall be in the manner of administration, not in the kingdom itself; God shall then come into direct connection with the earth, instead of mediatorially, when Christ shall have fully and finally removed everything that severs asunder the holy God and a sinful earth (Colossians 1:20). The glory of God is the final end of Christ’s mediatorial office (Philippians 2:10, Philippians 2:11). His co-equality with the Father is independent of the latter, and prior to it, and shall, therefore, continue when its function shall have ceased. His manhood, too, shall everlastingly continue, though, as now, subordinate to the Father. The throne of the Lamb (but no longer mediatorial) as well as of God, shall be in the heavenly city (Revelation 22:3; compare Revelation 3:21). The unity of the Godhead, and the unity of the Church, shall be simultaneously manifested at Christ’s second coming. Compare Zephaniah 3:9; Zechariah 14:9; John 17:21-24. The oldest manuscripts for “shall have delivered up,” read, “delivereth up,” which suits the sense better. It is “when He shall have put down all rule,” that “He delivereth up the kingdom to the Father.”

_ _ shall have put down all rule — the effect produced during the millenary reign of Himself and His saints (Psalms 110:1; Psalms 8:6; Psalms 2:6-9), to which passages Paul refers, resting his argument on the two words, “all” and “until,” of the Psalmist: a proof of verbal inspiration of Scripture (compare Revelation 2:26, Revelation 2:27). Meanwhile, He “rules in the midst of His enemies” (Psalms 110:2). He is styled “the King” when He takes His great power (Matthew 25:34; Revelation 11:15, Revelation 11:17). The Greek for “put down” is, “done away with,” or “brought to naught.” “All” must be subject to Him, whether openly opposed powers, as Satan and his angels, or kings and angelic principalities (Ephesians 1:21).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:24

Then — After the resurrection and the general judgment. Cometh the end — Of the world; the grand period of all those wonderful scenes that have appeared for so many succeeding generations. When he shall have delivered up the kingdom to the Father, and he (the Father) shall have abolished all adverse rule, authority, and power — Not that the Father will then begin to reign without the Son, nor will the Son then cease to reign. For the divine reign both of the Father and Son is from everlasting to everlasting. But this is spoken of the Son's mediatorial kingdom, which will then be delivered up, and of the immediate kingdom or reign of the Father, which will then commence. Till then the Son transacts the business which the Father hath given him, for those who are his, and by them as well as by the angels, with the Father, and against their enemies. So far as the Father gave the kingdom to the Son, the Son shall deliver it up to the Father, John 13:3. Nor does the Father cease to reign, when he gives it to the Son; neither the Son, when he delivers it to the Father: but the glory which he had before the world began, John 17:5; Hebrews 1:8, will remain even after this is delivered up. Nor will he cease to be a king even in his human nature, Luke 1:33. If the citizens of the new Jerusalem" shall reign for ever," Revelation 22:5, how much more shall he?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 15:24

(14) Then [cometh] the (h) end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down (i) all rule and all authority and power.

(14) The fourth argument with which also he confirms the other, has a most sure ground, that is, because God must reign. And this is the manner of his reign, that the Father will be shown to be King in his Son who was made man, to whom all things are made subject (the promiser being the only exception) to the end that the Father may afterward triumph in his Son the conqueror. And he makes two parts of this reign and dominion of the Son in which the Father's glory consists: that is first, the overcoming of his enemies, in which some must be deprived of all power, as Satan and all the wicked, be they ever so proud and mighty, and others must be utterly abolished, as death. And second, a plain and full delivery of the godly from all enemies, that by this means God may fully set forth the body of the Church cleaving fast to their head Christ, his kingdom and glory, as a King among his subjects. Moreover he puts the first degree of his kingdom in the resurrection of the Son, who is the head: and the perfection, in the full conjunction of the members with the head, which will be in the latter day. Now all these tend to this purpose, to show that unless the dead do rise again, neither the Father can be King above all, neither Christ the Lord of all. For neither should the power of Satan and death be overcome, nor the glory of God be full in his Son, nor his Son in his members.

(h) The conclusion and finishing of all things.

(i) All his enemies who will be robbed of all the power that they have.
