Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 8:6

_ _ to us — believers.

_ _ of whom — from whom as Creator all things derive their existence.

_ _ we in him — rather, “we for Him,” or “unto Him.” God the FATHER is the end for whom and for whose glory believers live. In Colossians 1:16 all things are said to be created (not only “by” Christ, but also) “for Him” (Christ). So entirely are the Father and Son one (compare Romans 11:36; Hebrews 2:10).

_ _ one Lord — contrasted with the “many lords” of heathendom (1 Corinthians 8:5).

_ _ by whom — (John 1:3; Hebrews 1:2).

_ _ we by him — as all things are “of” the Father by creation, so they (we believers especially) are restored to Him by the new creation (Colossians 1:20; Revelation 21:5). Also, as all things are by Christ by creation, so they (we especially) are restored by Him by the new creation.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 8:6

Yet to us — Christians. There is but one God — This is exclusive, not of the One Lord, as if he were an inferior deity; but only of the idols to which the One God is opposed. From whom are all things — By creation, providence, and grace. And we for him — The end of all we are, have, and do. And one Lord — Equally the object of divine worship. By whom are all things — Created, sustained, and governed. And we by him — Have access to the Father, and all spiritual blessings.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 8:6

But to us [there is but] one God, the Father, (f) of whom [are] all things, and we (g) in him; and (h) one Lord Jesus Christ, (i) by whom [are] all things, and we by him.

(f) When the Father is distinguished from the Son, he is named the beginning of all things.

(g) We have our being in him.

(h) But as the Father is called Lord, so is the Son therefore God: therefore this word "one" does not regard the persons, but the natures.

(i) This word "by" does not signify the instrumental cause, but the efficient: for the Father and the Son work together, which is not so to be taken that we make two causes, seeing they have both but one nature, though they are distinct persons.
