Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 2:11

_ _ Greek, “Faithful is the saying.”

_ _ For — “For” the fact is so that, “if we be dead with Him (the Greek aorist tense implies a state once for all entered into in past times at the moment of regeneration, Romans 6:3, Romans 6:4, Romans 6:8; Colossians 2:12), we shall also live with Him.” The symmetrical form of “the saying,” 2 Timothy 2:11-13, and the rhythmical balance of the parallel clauses, makes it likely, they formed part of a Church hymn (see on 1 Timothy 3:16), or accepted formula, perhaps first uttered by some of the Christian “prophets” in the public assembly (1 Corinthians 14:26). The phrase “faithful is the saying,” which seems to have been the usual formula (compare 1 Timothy 1:15; 1 Timothy 3:1; 1 Timothy 4:9; Titus 3:8) in such cases, favors this.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Timothy 2:11

(8) [It is] a faithful saying: For if we be (c) dead with [him], we shall also live with [him]:

(8) The fourth admonition: we ought not to contend upon words and questions, which are not only unprofitable, but also for the most part hurtful: but rather upon this, how we may compose ourselves to every manner of patience, and to die also with Christ (that is to say, for Christ's name) because that is the plain way to the most glorious life. And contrary to this, the falling away of men can diminish no part of the truth of God, even though by such means they procure most certain destruction to themselves.

(c) If we are afflicted with Christ, and for Christ's sake.
