Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 5:17

_ _ Therefore — connected with the words in 2 Corinthians 5:16, “We know Christ no more after the flesh.” As Christ has entered on His new heavenly life by His resurrection and ascension, so all who are “in Christ” (that is, united to Him by faith as the branch is In the vine) are new creatures (Romans 6:9-11). “New” in the Greek implies a new nature quite different from anything previously existing, not merely recent, which is expressed by a different Greek word (Galatians 6:15).

_ _ creature — literally, “creation,” and so the creature resulting from the creation (compare John 3:3, John 3:5; Ephesians 2:10; Ephesians 4:23; Colossians 3:10, Colossians 3:11). As we are “in Christ,” so “God was in Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:19): hence He is Mediator between God and us.

_ _ old things — selfish, carnal views (compare 2 Corinthians 5:16) of ourselves, of other men, and of Christ.

_ _ passed away — spontaneously, like the snow of early spring [Bengel] before the advancing sun.

_ _ behold — implying an allusion to Isaiah 43:19; Isaiah 65:17.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any one be in Christ — A true believer in him. There is a new creation — Only the power that makes a world can make a Christian. And when he is so created, the old things are passed away — Of their own accord, even as snow in spring. Behold — The present, visible, undeniable change! All things are become new — He has new life, new senses, new faculties, new affections, new appetites, new ideas and conceptions. His whole tenor of action and conversation is new, and he lives, as it were, in a new world. God, men, the whole creation, heaven, earth, and all therein, appear in a new light, and stand related to him in a new manner, since he was created anew in Christ Jesus.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Corinthians 5:17

(11) Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a (o) new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

(11) An exhortation for every man who is renewed with the Spirit of Christ to meditate on heavenly things, and not earthly.

(o) As a thing made new by God, for though a man is not newly created when God gives him the spirit of regeneration, but only his qualities are changed, yet nonetheless it pleased the Holy Spirit to speak so, to teach us that we must attribute all things to the glory of God. Not that we are as rocks or stones, but because God creates in us both the will to will well, and the power to do well.
