Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 John 2:2

_ _ And heGreek, “And Himself.” He is our all-prevailing Advocate, because He is Himself “the propitiation”; abstract, as in 1 Corinthians 1:30 : He is to us all that is needed for propitiation “in behalf of our sins”; the propitiatory sacrifice, provided by the Father’s love, removing the estrangement, and appeasing the righteous wrath, on God’s part, against the sinner. “There is no incongruity that a father should be offended with that son whom he loveth, and at that time offended with him when he loveth him” [Bishop Pearson]. The only other place in the New Testament where Greek “propitiation” occurs, is 1 John 4:10; it answers in the Septuagint to Hebrew,caphar,” to effect an atonement or reconciliation with God; and in Ezekiel 44:29, to the sin offering. In Romans 3:25, Greek, it is “propitiatory,” that is, the mercy seat, or lid of the ark whereon God, represented by the Shekinah glory above it, met His people, represented by the high priest who sprinkled the blood of the sacrifice on it.

_ _ andGreek, “yet.”

_ _ ours — believers: not Jews, in contrast to Gentiles; for he is not writing to Jews (1 John 5:21).

_ _ also for the sins of the whole world — Christ’s “advocacy” is limited to believers (1 John 2:1; 1 John 1:7): His propitiation extends as widely as sin extends: see on 2 Peter 2:1, “denying the Lord that bought them.” “The whole world” cannot be restricted to the believing portion of the world (compare 1 John 4:14; and “the whole world,” 1 John 5:19). “Thou, too, art part of the world, so that thine heart cannot deceive itself and think, The Lord died for Peter and Paul, but not for me” [Luther].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 2:1-2.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 2:2

And he is the propitiation — The atoning sacrifice by which the wrath of God is appeased. For our sins — Who believe. And not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world — Just as wide as sin extends, the propitiation extends also .

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 John 2:2

And he is the (b) propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the (c) whole world.

(b) Reconciliation and intercession go together, to give us to understand that he is both advocate and high priest.

(c) For men of all sorts, of all ages, and all places, so that this benefit being not to the Jews only, of whom he speaks as appears in (1 John 2:7) but also to other nations.
